internet i replied
connected to life
inducing
Internet wires
attached
to the veins
in the soul
i lied
he looked
at me bewildered
eyes open wide
as i shot him
from a cab
i gave him
this ride
a lift
to his destination
untried
time stood still
the soul was
willing
the inner

the cry of a child seeing his mothers world going wild ..born beguiled

the cry of a child seeing his mothers world going wild ..born beguiled, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

this could be a shot
while he was growing
in his mothers womb
of pain to a world
outside he too would
be fucked enchained
a vegetable crying
for the loss of
his cosmic brain
no no more just

his remains

i just got this .. in my head .. before it hit the sidewalk of my heart

as long as my cab does not move I shoot his pain and i know i wont see him again

I believed them and when after a grueling swim I came out at Nariman Point my friends were not to be sen and so I came home runnig at office hours and my bad luck I banged into Sherna Ghasvala who l…

Going Round And Round In Circles

Going Round And Round In Circles, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. beggar poets with
empty pockets
have nothing to share
a circle at the mercy

Sometimes Faith Is Taller Than The Tallest Building, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. Most of the pictures I shot are accidental, they happen and I never take this route to go to town , but the taxi driver veered his cab into the back lanes of Dadr assuming I wanted a short cut to my destination I stopped the cab and shot this series ..

I was going to town..and avoid taking the sea link most of the time.
