Utility Cars, iPhones, 4 BHK;
Insatiety! Greed for accumulated “things”-
The momentary pride of a new car,
Compared to carefree ride on the rusted bicycle!
Disconnected AI of an iPhone,
Versus deep-meaningful, soulful conversations,
Rhythmic “tring-tring” of the landline era!
Comforting memories of a warm-cozy home,
Small kitchen garden, Sparrow for a friend!
Anti-depressants, sleeping pills – in the 4 BHK.
Scattered shit, lifeless kids, out on the street.
Perfumes and incandescent candles,
In the house that’s not home – the 4 BHK!
Countless confusions & counted apprehensions,
Chaos is the namesake,
Of this city that’s dead and desolate!
