City

 

That city has gobbled up

the geyser of fireflies that rose

from the heart of night,

dancing in tandem with them-

 

in each of its breath

come out a cremation ground

and a graveyard

dancing in tandem-

 

that city has a usual sunrise-

birds sing and take to their wings routinely-

children hopscotch on pavement before boarding the yellow bus-

life dances

 

As if there is nothing to fear…..
