he reads a poem
to the song of a steel guitar
by a log fire
my soul settles on the hearth
his voice falls all around me

  a lifetime
of stubborn certainty
this night in bed
he pulls up his knees
and gives way to prayer

on the horizon ...
the flight
of the first pied hornbill
carrying its call

morning breeze
pregnant with monsoon mist
ruffles the peepal leaves
hanging in midair
the words I couldn't say

  frosted flakes
soaked in milk
what better time
to discuss
slush money

    if the old couple talk
they lean towards
each other
as if to share
more than their words
