bujhi wi bati aur ek chehra hai
gham ka utar chadav gehra hai
sar par maut ka sehra hai

teri rah par thaka hua musafir
manzil ki talash main tehra hai
khab adhura ..phir bhi sunehra hai

on the road
time silently
weeps as
dusk creeps
long shadows
dark and deep
what you sow
another man
reaps life
static inert

on a garbage
heap...what
you want
another man
keeps ..
the silence
of the sacrificial
sheep...head
bowed road
winding steep
