camel walk
pulled around the countryside
on a cart plush with pillows & blankets
big tall camel sauntering down the lanes
hung with red yellow saris
holy orange third eye above his nose
he steals a bite of overhanging tree
as the dust kicks up behind
children staring from the fenceposts
old man inviting us in to his house for chai or impossible conversation
mopeds bleeping to get past us out on the main thoroughfare
pass by downtown it’s bustling with old men in burkas
playing cards, spitting betel nut
the women hide their faces behind colored scarves as we pass by

at monkey temple a crowd gathers to gawk at us farangi
the camel pulls us back to raj’s fortress
where we all assemble for photographs & chai tea
