What is your verb


Heirloom of imperatives

The self tethered
to parts of speech

Tainted only by association
Pure of intent

Monolith shadow of Crown and Capital
scattering the light of multiple histories

Khusro to Bullah. Ada to Parveen
यह, वह, वो

He, she, they
Lover or Beloved? Woman or Man?

Lilting tongues, capacious
Mothers’ more gracious than the Master’s

The fluid self
worn lightly
