caught
in the karmic
vortex
of our
bloodstream
i am what
i am
she is
not what
she seems
a hijra
goddess
a beggar
poet team
angst passion
pathos
wordlessly
as it flows into
an ocean of a
photo stream
hijras are human
equivocally
eloquently
it screams
demanding
respect
esteem



alif lam mim
the curse
of the people
bringing down
feudal
dynastic
despotic
regime
when sitting
on their
creaking thrones
whabbi warlords
the word of god
blaspheme
baki bahut kuch
honor sacrifice
a pledge to
redeem
not just poets
even angels
held captive
to time also
daydream
in a cemetery
a languishing
silhouette
of pain
bismillah
arhmanirahim
a poetic curve
aligning
the soul of
humanity
extreme
light at
the end of a tunnel
a spiritual beam
as it burns
boils steams
freedom
the only
everlasting
theme
