the rich
mans god
gives them
their daily bread
under fed
on the path
of misery
over spread
bleeding red
a gravestone
their sleeping
head death
walks over them
but softly treads
keeps them alive
moves ahead
corroded flesh
souls made
of lead
the roads
as bed
their home

to susan ratcliff
trey ratcliff
my world of pain

Racist Eunuch Poets Encore

racist eunuch poets galore
lets tear this black mambas
testicles they swore
lets make him a eunuch
said one English boar
lets sodomize his poetry
in a sing song voice
said a barbie whore
lets kick his brown butt
show him the door
said a crochety
English rabid poet
while he snored
loose bowel
his sphincter tore
defending him
a howlin scored
venomous hate from
the fangs of draculean
as it out poured
his hands
his unflinching
shia faith
a weeping sword
an indian leopard
in his lair
ya hussain
he roared

thank you howlingly
your love I echo
being kicked out
without being given a reason
hurts me so
the victim is punished
the racists of a poetry forum
running freely
to and fro
yes hate
is what makes
hate grow
monster hogs
witches of Armageddon
they do not know
a loose bowel
shitting poems
in the snow
a meta morphed
with a trident
raised eyebrow
rusty old Wilkinson blades
may god rest his soul
he died in his sleep
fucking flo
to poetry of mediocrity
what a blow
on his grave
an epitaph
by a shitting crow

Firoze Shakir Poet Has Aged

she whom he loved
has flown the coop
a cosmic heart
where she was caged
she is happily married
her life upstaged
many years back
he had deleted her
from his fucked
he raged
trying to get
her back violently
a war of emotions
he waged
he grew wiser
wounds scars
time has assuaged
firoze shakir poet
incorrigible bachelor
had gracefully aged

A Poets Dream World Never Dies


poem by Howlin Dervesh at Poem Hunter

For the want of an 'r'
Our lives have
Or may
Change somewhat.

With out 'r' we
Could never be Rude
only ude
Ude is my new word for today

As we get old and gay
And prance in the ude
Looking far from ude
As today may say

Uday Howlin,

As President 'Tricky Dick' Nixon once said;
'You won't have me to kick around anymore'
So it is with Firoze...


T McH (12/16/2007 2:13:00 PM)
Ude is an excellent word.

Actually - despite the hurling of crap I found Firoze personable and charming. Also easily offended and easily offensive. Never to me however and I take people as I find them. o me. Whilst being aware of what they may say about others. As do you.... F. t x

walking barefeet
in the blazing sun
as a messenger
of peace and photography
i shoot what others
refuse to shoot
i shoot not to make money
i shoot not to be famous
or a celebrity in humility
are my roots i shoot
whores in redlight cages
hijras beautiful hirsute
i shoot beggars malangs
rafaees the devdasis
manhole gutter cleaners
dying of poisonous fumes
i shoot aghoris naga babas
covered in human ash and soot
because god was kind
lent me his cosmic vision
through my pictures
i pay him tribute
but all in all
it is the common man
struggling to survive
i pay him my
final tribute
tears on the soul
of my beloved
slaughtered every day
by scams corruptions
by those who run it and loot
india against corruption
team anna too has become
political vindictive instead
of pursuing truth

Picture of a hijra Santosh who comes every year from Nasik to pierce his cheeks with a 18 feet road at Sion Koliwada as tribute to Tamil Goddess Marriamen goddess of fertility and universal peace..he has been doing this ritual since 9 years ..

I have been shooting the Marriammen feast for almost 5 years all over Mumbai and will also pierce my cheeks with a 22 feet rod to show my solidarity with the Hindu Tamils next year perhaps..

Now You Know Why I Cant Get Myself To Shoot Sunsets Landscapes And Mountains

Needles Limes And Holding Burning Pot of Faith

The Supermen of Maryamma

Hardcore Street Photography of Pain

Hardcore Street Photography of Pain

Mouth To Mouth With The Hijra

The Hijra Pierces his Cheek with a 18 Feet Rod

The Hijra Pierces his Cheek with a 18 Feet Rod

The Hijra Pierces his Cheek with a 18 Feet Rod

The Hijda Gets Ready for the Cheek Piercing

The hijdas are a very unique race , totally seeped in ritualism and hardcore spirituality of the street , they are active participants dancing their way into the Holy Saints heart during the various Urus at Ajmer or Haji Malang.

I have tried to talk less on my pictures keeping them as visuals only, but my fascination for the hijda ethos makes me voluble.

One thing I must reiterate I was invited here by Raja the piercer and it was the first time he invited me here to Sion Koliwada , imagine I know him since three years.

Why this change of heart I dont know,,he hardly ever talked to me or ever called me, but now I have his phone number.

Raja will not pierce your cheeks without money this is his basic rule hard cash no Udhar means no credit , he charges for the removal of the hooks and the rods too..

But he is experienced and does a fabulous job.Nobody complains .

Photography is not about shooting a picture and sharing it for comments discussion etc photography is the mother of all emotions ..just see the raw thoughts in the hijdas eyes in a few seconds the rod will enter his cheeks through and I was not merely shooting his facial expressions but his spiritual anguish only the wise will read it and understand.

He was a decent hijda not raucous or loud , and gave me a lot of respect as he knew I would reach the dark crevices of his soul through Shivas eye embedded in my camera like body.

Of late due to professional personal problems my heart and soul is not in my photography there are other fears that haunt me I shoot this with a passion but not the way I should have if I was in a better frame of mind.

You can write poems and a novel on an empty stomach but street photography should be with a peaceful state of mind without hindrance stress or agitated state of mind.

So with this picture I show you the various frames of this hijdas cheek piercing with a 18 feet rod , I confess I shot him extensively he was my subject and I did not let him go.

And he had told me the following day he would go back to Nasik from where he hailed.

The Tamils are good natured people very possessive about their rituals customs and Goddess Maryamma.

I am now a known face ion this community and even people I dont know greet me and remind me that they had seen me in their procession .

So my genre is hardcore street photography of pain , I wanted to pierce my cheeks at Mahim but my Tamil frends told me to wait , perhaps it is because when I do this ritual one day I want my mentor Dr Glenn Losack to be there and shoot me too a Shia blogger among the Tamil brethren.

Because I can cut open my head with a dagger I have no fear of pain at all..and maybe because of my diabetic condition I dont really feel pain like you would ..only my bleeding does not stop for a long time.

There is another ritual connected with Maryamma the devotees walking on fire.I have not shot it as yet.

The one Maryamma feat I missed this year was the Maryamma Feast Madras Wadi Worli.

It happened and I did not know about it.

But through Raja I will cover the Sion Koliwada belt next year too.

Rangoli Colors for Diwali

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rangoli is a traditional decorative folk art of India. These are decorative designs made on floors of living rooms and courtyards during Hindu festivals and are meant as sacred welcoming areas for the Hindu deities.[1] The ancient symbols have been passed on through the ages, from each generation to the one that followed, thus keeping both the art form and the tradition alive.

RIP .. Wendell Gomes of Bandra De Monte Street ..

Wendell Gomes was a great guy a great husband a great father and a great son , his mother Mrs Gomes was my neighbor when I stayed at Bazar Road Kamla Bai Sadan..De Monte Street
Wendell was national hockey player too ..

He was being treated for brain tumor and was in great pain when he passed away a lot folks came to mourn his death..I was not aware of it I came to know of his sad demise when I chanced to read this notice board I immediately went to pay my respect to Mrs Gomes his bereaved mother , the first thing she told me that she was blessed with a humanitarian daughter in law , who took care of her son Wendell till the end and she wished everyone had a daughter in law like her .. In India very rarely do mother in laws praise their daughters in laws specially if they lose their son prematurely..
