head moves to n fro,
clutching with teeth, to pull n throw,
That filthy fog wants to eat something from the garbage.

Bubble trouble, inside-outside,
Sit waiting for the monthly check,
Cluck! cluck! cluck!

Meeting, money, deadline, stress!
Relax, love, life, easy!
All work, no life, no balance!

My eyes shut- color, flowers, smiles, love;
My eyes open - Laptops, mobiles, printers, telephones;
Type type, click click, tring tring! Grr!

Rima, Mumbai


trrrrrree! trrrrrreea! trrrrrreea!
Trees around; third round... huff huff huff...
Can't find the parrot.


No body comes here!
No more, no less to cheer

he touched like a feather, he slept like a breeze
he felt like a spring, and eased through the trees
trrring trrring, he woke up

Once in a while, I walk the same path;
And try to remain same despite maddening wrath;
There goes the man who does his own work without being bothered.

Sqwik! Sqwik! Sqwik! Cawe! Sqwik! Sqwik!
Passing red tomatoes, green cucumber, yellow lemons...
Good morning!

The Girl

its fluttering and.. its eyes,
its stuttering... and it cries,
manipulative girl


her cure, is a pure, thwack on the head
she tries and she dreams, ever moves ahead?
silly girl


loving like a lottery won
exhilerating momentary fun
love, unlike lottery stays


no words can fill that gap i know
not trying here, ever so sure
walk along

Insanity reigns, suspicion thrives...
Fires spread, malice strikes...
And there lies the dying kid with blood around.

on grass, on little palm, between cycle-spokes
fluff! fluff! fluff! fluff! fluff! fluff! flies the butterfly
good morning!

Crawl - silent, surreptitious crawl,
On the calf, underneath the jeans.
Thack! out drops a little frog.


kiss and tell,
only a kiss can tell
reach out tenderness!

Issues, problems
Bigger issues, bigger problems

- Arti, Mumbai


Music, longing, noise, silence dies down... but the sounds stay
Pain, sweat, tears, dreams dry down... but the taste stays
Running, escapes, caress, boundaries tear down but the touch stays

disscussions, arguments, altercations,
i, you, they, why, go, stay
love matters the most in life

Chatting, Coding, Mailing -
Tik Tik Tik Tik Tik...
Typing all the way.

Self Uncontrol

self uncontrol, a storm in the mind
forced, fearful, frail thoughts
silence at 1561, park street

- Vivek, 27, New Delhi

sitting, typing, cramped beside the window -
cluck cluckcluck cluck cluck cluck! thack!
whiff of cool air brushes my cheek...

Damp hopes and a memory -
three kisses and a ride -
Ting tong! the doorbell rings.

Monday, August 6, 2007


Sweating and heaving running along,
Dry leaves crushing, making noises strong...
Crrrech.. Craaaw Creeech Craaaw..

heavy heavy sky, downcast,
ghrrrring ghrrrrrrrrrrrringh were sedans, trucks, buses.
glimpsed her feet - fair, laced, svelte


Cawe! Cawe! Cawe! on the window grill...
Heavy drops touch solid earth.
Drenched gurgling memories...

auto-rickshaws run stutter tutter... putter tutter.
black waters -
Croak... croakcroak, croakcroak...


Clank clank! tak tak tak... peepeep... peep! Claaaaaaank!
Amidst concrete and metal;
twittetwitter... twitter...
