close to bhabha
hospital bus stop
he sits ,, on
his hollow face
death writ
that he will die
sooner or later
end of a tragic
street skit
once he begged
mute at the traffic

to be a dumb wit
but those sunny

of the death knell
this unfortunate

to call it quits
this madman
of bandra dressed
like a bandit
