1.

hike up to hanuman temple
with sanu
in the morning sun
pigs, cows & dogs
all rooting in the rubbish
monkeys
monkey babies
hanging from the trees
the faithful feed them peanuts &
bananas
all along the way

jai mahal
floats upon the murky waters
dusty mountains rise behind
people throw breadcrumbs for the fish
leave them by the ratholes along the waters edge

3.

thunder rolls out over the pink city
a boom blat bomb
louder even then the minarets
broadcasting evening prayer songs
wind picks up
rain comes down
echoing in the alleyway
still the sound of horns & mopeds
yelping in the just wet streets
