You have many to feed you
You can enter any kitchen, any time
steal butter, fresh and pure.
I peep into neighbor’s kitchen
‘You here?’, yells the Mami
‘Can I see you for a minute?’,
‘Wait in the foyer
Till I adjust my sari layer’.
I wait for an hour
Mami still before the mirror!.
‘Panthikokku -roasted smell from your house’
Alerts mandhi Paru.
Pandhikokku is peruchAzhi or bandicoot,
Mandi Paru, the obese lady in the opposite house!
I don’t even roast bread, who roasts a big rat?
I rush back home.
OMG, i had only one wife and one bed
The wife had gone, now the bed is floating!
I had left a water tap fully opened!.
And why this charred smell every where!
I rush to the kitchen, the stove is on
The vessel with water was bright and round
When I kept on the stove ,
What you call this new shape and color?
My geometry is poor.
I look up.
The ceiling is still seated on the walls;
I look at the mirror,
My head is still safe on my shoulder!
You saved me Krishna, you saved me!
