The Cosmic Poet of Mumbai

The Cosmic Poet of Mumbai, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. teri ankhon main
basi hai
kisi aur ki taswir
main kismet
ka mara hua
fakir
mere nam
par
usene
mar di lakir
kisi aur ke dil pe
lag gayi teer
aiee thi
meri shamat
badal
gayee
taqdeer





I am the only cosmic
poet of mumbai..
wingless into any
heart I can fly
merchant of Venus
only love
I cannot buy
she left me
for another man
on a hand cart
called desire
she left me
to die
my camera
shoots pain
Shivas third eye
she is blind and deaf
she cannot
see my tears
or hear
the anguish
in my cry

I Shoot Poems Before I Shoot Pictures

I Shoot Poems Before I Shoot Pictures, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. she refuses
to hear my voice
my hoarse coarse
poetic call
she calls
pedestrian noise
although
I have deleted
her from my
consciousness
with her silence
my soul
she destroys
love now
second hand
lost invoice
an elegy
on the death
of a mad poet
rings of turquoise

My Dead Body On a Hand Cart

My Dead Body On a Hand Cart, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. as i wont be going
to the shia cemetery
this time
just me my
incomplete rhyme
deleted from
her heart
one last time
my dead body
on a hand cart
a memory
of a life time
falling
in love
was my
only crime
she has
already found
a replacement
in the mean time
while a new
mountain
once again
I climb
soulless
without a dime
for a woman
love is
only a pastime

The Elegy on the Death of a Mad Poet

Love is Dead Meat

Love is Dead Meat, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. a dead
heart beat
trampled
under
her heartless
feet
love searching
for a clean
winding sheet
love is dead meat
although
I have deleted
her from my
consciousness
as shadows
of silence
on dark streets
of the mind
we meet
she loves
to cheat
making
gain
out of
my defeat
every two
steps I retreat
with the man
she loves
I cant compete
a pedestrian poet
just words incomplete
words of sorrow
like a caged parrot
i love to repeat
although
she has deleted
me from her heart
one day her love
I will out beat
a strangely
dressed poet
barefeet

dil main hai
dimag main hai
sab jagah
hai tu
phir bhi
poochta hoon
kahan
kho gayi hai tu
mere zehan
meri ashqi
main sama
gayi hai tu
meri badkismati
ko zinda
rakhti
hai
teri rooh
yeh
bat sach hai
teri
khamoshi
se athi
hai bagawat
ki bu
although
i have deleted
you from my
consciousness
its true
i love you

Although I Have Deleted You From My Consciousness

Although I Have Deleted You From My Consciousness, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 121,122 items / 791,960 views

I think you
have forgotten
my web address
my love
messages
to you
you wont
log in
or access
you
love him
more than
you love me
I guess
I keep
remembering you
although
I have deleted you
from my consciousness
a few memories
no more no less
your soothing voice
your souls
poetic bareness
your purr and you caress
my dreams your light
blue shimmering
night dress
one sided love
a game of chess
a knave a king queen
no progress pawned
to your desires
in silence
a thought express
my ship sinking
going down in distress
you I hope demonically
to possess
my pain my misery
I solemnly confess
romancing a stone
a stone hardhearted
princess

The Hijra Woman Man Made

they dance
they beg
they solicit
whatever
their trade
they dont
promote
hatredness
bomb mosques
kill innocent people
an edict
that god forbade
they are definitely
not jehaddis
they are definitely
not terrorists
or suicide bombers
martyrdom
misplaced
yes hijras
a hijra woman
man made
by heartless
male dominated
hatecentric
society
abused
betrayed
that religious
bigots
love to degrade
the hijra
watching
his despair
his remorse
his pain
as he begins
to jade
his soul
his angst
on every
street corner
flayed

In The Defence of Khwajah Gharib Nawaz

In The Defence of Khwajah Gharib Nawaz, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. These are about 43 pictures I had forgotten to upload and much of last night I was adding titles to the pictures I had posted at Flickr without text..and I know this is not the place but a Facebook friend posted a video of Mehraj Rabbani the rabid Sufi hating Ahle Hadeez Maulana , and his derogatory and insulting words against the Shahenshah of Indian Sufism Khwajah Gharib Nawaz, I am not a Sufi adherent but Sufism has influenced my way of life and I hold Ajmer Sharif in the highest esteem, I shoot the Urus every year and live with Peersaab Fakhru Miya of Hujra No 6..and he has been my mentor my guide and lover of Ahle Bayt like me.

The derogatory words against hijras by this rabid Maulana is an insult against Humanity , I dont see what harm the Hijras have done by being hijras, they dont wear masks blow up trains mosques or kill innocent people in the name of a Misplaced and Misguided Jehad..
