Mother and Boy

Stop the traffic, let us pass
On your cycles, in your cars;
Path to path we sell our wares
Among the sound of silent stares.

"Mangoes, Rupees ten for two"

While a young mother cries.

Shadows they dance
To the tune of the flames,
Like a movie through tattered
Old celluloid frames;
And as the light d…

Operation

Close your eyes, relax, forget;
the hand is cold, the hand of death –

and down the hall the swinging doors have closed –
