A poetic fall

It looked like a full and rounded rumpJust a signature sillyconCity hump Excited, he mounted it merrilyWith soft hands on handlebar mistakenly  Revolted, she threw him into spaceHe just flew and landed flat on his face  Kissed the road and painting it valentine redWith a bruised ego, he slinked into hospital bed namma sillyconCity is exciting, enjoy the voluptuous curves just be gentle and grip your hands hard!

Crossings

A drunken man with a dangling beedi staggers across a busy road. A disabled man in a wheelchair carefully navigates the same busy road. A young kid helps her mother with a young baby cross the road. A dog darts rapidly to the other side. The motor biker from wrong side rapidly cuts into the right side. The car honks and the bus blares. I just watch the fun, while riding the cycle. Crossings in…

Pavement family

Amidst the busy humdrum of traffic live a family on the pavement. From the Hindi belt, here in Bangalore now to making a living, they make lovely plaster-of-paris artefacts that they sell on the pavement. As I cycle to work, I see their two young children playing on the pavement, happy and content. And the bunch of frustrated well-to-do guys in their air-conditioned cars a few feet away.  Just another day in the sillycon city….
