Whats Her Story God Alone Knows !

Whats Her Story God Alone Knows !, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 101,237 items / 655,116 views

horrible ugly so very gross
her eyes always open
socket less wont close
beggar photography
humanly woes
she sits each morning
at boran road
where traffic
to and from
bandra bazar road
overflows
shot once by an American
including this blogger firoze
she has two kids
through begging
educated
read life's prose
their shadows
on her life as
on our lives grow
while seeing me shooting her
some raise their eyebrows
through a bleeding blog
to show you
the underbelly
of deprivation
a path I chose
pedestrian poetry
molten tears
burning the petals
the insides of a rose

thanks all of you
7000 pictures
through
which she grew
from the second
day of her life

her godfather
a Brooklyn
born
American Jew
her grand father
her only Guru
a Shia Pandit Muslim-Hindu
a barefeet blogger
like a fly in a Hijda stew
a pedestrian poet
pictorial haiku
living
in a glass house
with doors
made of bamboo
welcome all
merci beaucoup
sartorial soliloquy
fleshed to poetry
through and through
mutually coexisting
in a land of his cultural
inheritance of
brahma mahadev vishnu
