Walking in Memphis, Kolkota

traffic honking

pigeons cooing

dogs barking

children laughing

merchants selling

traffic moving

traffic honking

afternoon prayer on the speakers

trees covered in soot

uneven side walks designed to trip you up

traffic honking

still images of Mother Teresa

Coke, Lexus, Lay’s chips

traffic’s waste and burning garbage lingers in my nose

Then just as suddenly, food wafts in to replace the unnatural smell, leaving me in a constant nauseous state of craving food or dislodging a lung

traffic honking

evening prayer

my body tells me to sleep.  it begins to tune into the heartbeat of Kolkata, more apt and ready than my mind

traffic honking
