for a travesty
of gender
by fate
in the dinghy rooms
of the peela house cages
they wait
social outcasts
their angst
their struggle
through pictures
on the soul
of humanity
i update
the creaking cot
the bed bugs
the musky smell
of urine morbidity
a seminal soliloquy
as the hijra gyrates
heat and sweat
as she flips over
her dead weight
a strange encounter
a strange bed mate
hijra sex
a rarity
a delicacy
hook line
sinker and bait
the hijra
god could
but did not
want to create
source of ignominy
self hate
i shot
the hijra copulating
with her pathetic customer
i did not need my camera
to capture sorrow despair
remorse a moment innate
mindlessness that
for once did not titillate
as the fucked fan
slowly rotates
the act over

the money crumpled

I began my journey as a blogger in 2005 at Buzznet and Blogspot Fotothing Webshots..but my site at Buzznet got hacked and some Shia hating son of a bitch put pornographic pictures in my Shia galleries that I had at Buzznet.

I faced the wrath of bigots in my own community in holier than thou Lucknow the cosmic city of my accidental birth , I was threatened by a few brigands that are part of every society, only these brigands were Shias I was naive new to blogging I requested Buzznet to delete my account I had two they had suspended it from their end because of the hacking.

I deleted my Blogspot accounts , and I learnt a lesson online about the vicious attack, the racism if you are accidentally a target of such mischief.

I had another web presence the oldest that holds my memories as a blogger that I did not delete , its a gravestone I dont post anything here at all.. instead I joined the best in photo man…

Is There a Hijra Paradise

Is There a Hijra Paradise, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 170,264 items / 1,322,899 views

angels of the gutters
broken sullied wings
that refuse to fly
entombed on earth
dreams of celestial skies
wondering time and again
is there a hijra paradise
androgynous hopes
illusions human bondage
clothed in disguise
hated by godmen
hated by gaurds in khaki
the hijra angst pays
a heavy price
in the cages of hijra despair
a fucked human soul cries
on a clothesline of despair
it dries 'tears that fall like
molten raindrops from
socket less eyes
a commodity
in a flesh market
chopped minced
they buy
a sexuality
doomed to
rectal darkness
a cosmic fate
a hijra soul
