Old songs, reminders, promises...
Melodies swing away to glory
A battery recharged for the night
A casket of hope, of boredom, of anxiety...
Fringes of toil, of revival, of love
A sudden utterance of ‘love you’
An unused rugged pillow
Affairs, beauty, novelty
A cashmere shawl wrapped on a beggar
A roadside vendor of hot momos
A girl, small and sullen
A table made of tea-tree
A window opening towards a wall
A cosmic string of earthly control
Dominance, flattery, and lies
Austere faces of the sunburnt cheeks
A baby’s sleeping face!!
