Theme: Dogs

Dog Culture

A dead silence seems to have descended
on their cosmetic faces bathed 
in blurred beauty of the unisex parlour
in their morning and evening walks
their pets inhale fresh air
and they exhale money after money 
on their humane upbringing
their hands are in grip of the strips 
and straps around their necks
of their dogs of foreign breeds-
sophisticated dogs wearing strange looks-
wolves, foxes, tigers and the ilk
like the unknown animals, known to them,
VIP treatment they get and enjoy 
even without any mandated reservation
with their pet-loving masters' ultra lifestyle!

In Delhi's crowds of dog life, ever dogged
by poverty, ill-sanitation, and what not 
all dodged. I am standing awestruck, 
lost in the reverie of our fellow beings' life!

Just then a dirty, hair-spoiled street dog 
with all wet unseen tears turns towards me!
