the grand children
are upset as
their favorite
grand ma
they cannot find
listening to
tales from
their grandpa
they unwind
a vacuous
darkness
their world
has gone
stealthily
silent
blind
she was
cool

I accidentally at Facbook fell in love with a transvestite from Lahore
she was a poet a commercial worker a socialite whore I gave her an inch she asked for more I deactivated my account from her life I am no more
I shut the door ..she might stalk me follow me on Google + a thought I cant ignore ...fire brimstone blood and gore ..a whore is a whore is a whore .. the curtains come down the crowds shout encore ....


she says no
i say yes
although
she has
deleted me
from her fucked
consciousness
the recycling bin
of my poetry mind
my thoughts
my pain
belong to her
including
all that
i possess
a man
who enticed me
in a womans dress
the transvestites tale
continues with no success
her voluptuous mouth
her hunger her thirst
her caress
even in solitary silence
i cannot express
on the other side
of the border
dark side of the moon
her fucked address
a pain humiliating my
soul in…

best years
of my life
were spent
in this hotel

as a sales person

a thought
rings a bell
callaghan of bombay
walking the ramp
with a rose
in his lapel
jenifer kendall
gaby kapoor
styling clothes
giving us
experience
in a nutshell
so many
memories
the mind
cannot quell
dickensian
characters
of a novel
thoughts that
propel
in life
without
this stint
i would have
not excelled

As A Poet I Am A Positive Spam

As A Poet I Am A Positive Spam, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. words
in the wash basin
of my head
cramped and jammed
superfluously wanting to
come out as poems
my ass they slam
as a poet cosmic
or otherwise
i am positive spam
words bursting
an overflowing dam
the river of my mind
they out swam
a pedestrian poet
a sacrificial lamb
my foot stuck
in her doorjamb
with her silence
my soul she rams
though she is a man
i call her ma'am
one thing is certain
if we get married
she wont get pregnant
she wont need a pram
the transvestites tale
in my head programmed
Hurrah's
on her soul
distinctly
monogrammed

Girish Mistry - Unraveling the Mystery of Light

Girish Mistry - Unraveling the Mystery of Light, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. I shot pictures at Ganesh Gully and took a short bus trip to come to the other end , I walked barefeet to reach Prabhadevi to see the works of Girish Mistrys students..Luxoculus 2009...

Girish and I go a long way back, he too is one of my Photo Gurus , the best of contemporary times.I made Girish Mistrys wedding clothes in 4 hours , as he had decided to get married and wanted a photographer cum tailor do his clothes.

This was the fastest I had done anyone's marriage clothes I rushed in time with the dress , as the Pandit kept saying , muhrat ka samay ja raha hai,ladke aur unke kapdon ko jaldi bulao...

So this is the crux of our relationship.. Girish me and his wedding clothes..

I attended just a single workshop of Girish on Light and that is it, it struck me like a bolt.. I was ready to shoot the streets of pain.

Girishes students are very brave and the best street photographers , crea…

The Living Dead Lepers of Taragadh..

The Living Dead Lepers of Taragadh.., a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. The shells are equivalent to coins that they will exchange at the Holy Shrine and get paid back in hard currency..

The beggars on this stretch are pathetic morbid and I understood some of the pain as I was barefeet .. my own legs blue bruised bleeding..

I can never forget the beggars maggots eating raw flesh, hidden faces ravaged by a deadly killer disease and all this made me think , I bled within , all my education was nullified by this sordidness of human life and degradation..

This was the most depressing trek of life for me...and I completed it with a white man.. my spiritual brother ..Marc de Clercq..I dont know if it changed his life but it changed mine forever..
