Frozen jalebi!
I jumped out of the bed.
Ground still wet
washed by Aaji, seated.
Slip toward care
by the feet.
Ant this is familiar, hear the burps,
repetitive, radical,
flute-like.
Worlds, as neem sapling,
our eyes, about the same, dark kohl.
Look, the voice
rice, raw, ni here, sa there,
swinging singing.
Ghee, hibiscus, vermillion
entire village carry bundles, ant
the essentials, brother.
Aaji, endlessness.
