Poetry: Naivety

July 11, 2010


like me do you also marvel
when you hear someone
at the next table, say
while peering at the menu
'it is very warm
and the humidity is killing
what is the soup du jour today?
i don't see pomfret on the menu?
no? why not?
alright what about nihari?
achcha, can you first get me 
a glass of cold water?

40 words when 4
can i have some water
should suffice

in confession
i marvel too
at my naivety

love people who are in awe of words. words are the sole arbiter and the final survivor. desicritic editor, slave and slave-driver.
