5.46, Andheri Local

In the women’s com­part­ment
of a Bombay local
we seek
no per­so­nal epi­pha­nies.
Like metal licked by relent­less ace­ty­lene
we are wel­ded –
dreams, disas­ters,
germs, des­ti­nies,
flesh and organ­za,
odours and ova­ries.
A thou­sand-lim­bed
mil­lion-ton­gued, mul­ti-spou­sed
Kali on wheels.

When I des­cend
I could choose
to dice car­rots
or a lover.
I post­pone the lat­ter.
