Muslim Woman in a Mans World

Muslim Woman in a Mans World, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. she begs
while they pray
her words
they wont
hear anyway
muslim male
dominated society
mullah powered
fatwa generated
fire and brimstone
a woman has no say
born in a cradle
to her grave
she will go
by the way
triple talaq
a sword hanging
on her head
either way
they slay
a mother
a sister
a daughter
an aunt
she is a woman
you dont
need to repay
a toy
made of
a bit of clay
her world stark
black and white
no shades of gray

dedicated to fred miller the pune essence

I Am a Born Beggar ,,,She Said With A Silent Nod Of Her Head, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. now i am not
an astrologer
or a mind reader
but a malang
a mystic
i asked her
will you too
make your
children beggars
after you have wed
she looked puzzled
quizzically her face
went red .. tears
for her unborn
children as yet
she wont shed
tears are blood
body is bread
she suddenly
raced ahead
the subject
she asked
me if i was
a beggar
was it with
mans camera
i had fled
i gave her
some money

a standing ovation

miller rudy fred
fighting an enemy
with devious
pincers ..

I Am Dying .

I Am Dying ., a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. Every picture
every frame
i shoot kills
me bit by bit
a single shot
i am at my wit
barefeet i kiss
vomit spit
glass pieces
yes i too
get hit ..

i will soon be resting
i await my time
fuck you death..
my life its bits
pieces ..i
gladly submit
you can fool
others me
you cant outwit
hurriedly wanting
to go but in oxymoron
haste suicide
i wont commit
this poetic disease
of unliving to
others i wont
transmit ,,,
much before
you come to
your senses
i will give up
my breath
my spirit

I Shoot Beggars Simply Because Media Wont Shoot Them..

eid ke din chand
badkismat musalmanon
ki zindagi ke phatte pane
behisab,,,waqt hath lagate
hi kismet kharab..
