lost in time

a garbage dump
with goats cats dogs
rats luckily no swine

swept fine
but next elections
he might lose
his deposit
a thought
not mine

ulterior design

he sees
absolute weirdos
on his beat
he sees
bevdas gardalus
cheats ..he sees
robbers with slippery
feet ..with a danda
in his hand every
danger he meets
on fucked up
mumbai streets
sometimes tired
missing his own
kids he gives
urchins biscuits
sweets ..in his
crumpled crispy khaki
neat ..the good the bad
the ugly he greets
no time for breakfast
lunch or dinner
a few batatwada
'some bhajiyas he eats
at a street stall
beneath a corrugated
cement sheet thankless
job one mistake
sent to the naxal area
his life incomplete
political interference
bad salary no proper
housing ...still victorious
in defeat ...khaki
his winding sheet
