Theme: Waiting

He Waits

Coughing old man,
Waits patiently,
This side of the
Marital/martial bed
---As wide as the Australian continent---
Midnight hour,
The way
A young bride waits,
Half-asleep,
Half-awake,
In the 3-room condominium
For her
Man to return
From a swanky
MNC office in
Congested
Gurgaon,
Bangalore,
Or,
Mumbai;
Or,
A sick patient,
Her dour doctor,
First thing,
In an
Overcrowded Delhi
Municipal hospital,
On a bitter
January morning!
