Multiples of four walls

One long roof

Concrete floors , stand stable

Unmoved.

White embroidered flowers

On blue curtains

A layer of dust on the window

panes.

Carry rubbed out letters

To look through.

A vastu plant of yellowed

Twigs , spread its faithful

Roots in a glass bowl

With no water

An abandoned toy train

On a stationary track

Alphabet blocks

Fill the door way .

Puja room looks

Unlived , lamp is sticky

With left out oil

Burnt out wick

Bed room looks sleepy

Disturbed by the lying

Screams of a plasma screen .

A small head tosses

Restlessly on my lap

” What if you go away

when I am asleep ?”
