just married
feeling quite lonely
in the city
her ears pick up a vendor’s
‘glass bangles for sale’
 
   

the aum
on our front doors
hers ornamental
and mine in plain wood
reveals us inside out

from the distant hill
ripples
in the boatman’s song –

yet always different
a dance of ephemerides

Tirupati
full of devotees …
Govinda
drowned entirely
by calls to keep moving


gu?i tumba
bhaktadiga?u …

mu?ugiye hoda
