The Garbage Graveyard Of Bandra Bazar .., a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

in my backyard
a graveyard grows
dead chicken dead
fish dead meat
are buried here
a gutter overflows
for the morning
prayers of the dead
a congregation of
crows weeping
goats dogs piddling
their woes cats
wary of rats ..watch
the dead in rows
and furrows ,,,
the fragrance
all over blows
some inhale
to open their
blocked nose
a picture shot
by fucked firoze
of deathly despair
unrepentant remorse
his grand children
aged 5 and 2 learnt
photography shooting
this monumental grave
upclose ..which i am
sure you all know
