waiting for the great white hope
dr glenn
in mumbai
one and a half men
me
appu my best friend
while the good doctor
in new york Manhattan
pondering
to go or not to go
heritage hotel
rajesh from tci
recommends
a trip to haji malang
on 21 feb 2010
down the mountains
of malangad he wends
the hijdas the eunuchs
the rafaees round the bend
moment like a bubble
in midair suspends
ashura in mumbai
at the amin imambada
swords cutting backs
as they bend
scourging blades
the flesh sweepingly
wont defend
at habib hospital
sword wounds
the doctors will tend
an invitation
to a Brooklyn jew
the shia pandit
extends
tears on the soul
of Fatima
in an an envelop
as a poem
he sends

APPU MY BEST FRIEND !

Every Wednesday
this Muslim beggar
pint size
without hands
without legs
fights
the swarming
attacking
mumbai flies
a smile on his face
that never dies
he is hope
sitting on a kerbside
a stump of a disaster
minus thighs
growing from the street
he cant stand or rise
his life larger
than your web page size
through the humility
of worn out words
a pedestrian pain
to stylize
he is a reminder
of gods godliness
in disguise
