alone along the well-lit city street walking
in the dead of the night,
i find all sediments
settled in sleep
at the bottom of the glass;
but yet, there from the sidewalk shadows,
a light churning,
a chuckle,
laughing in his dream.

Thanks, Balan. Walking the stretch between Secretariat and Ayurveda College, looking for an autorickshaw around 11 pm last night.

thanks, buddy.
suddenly a peace descends on you. just the grinding sound of your footsteps on the road. golden light from sodium vapour lamps. your shadow making an arc across the road as you walk past. total silence and then a chuckle from the shadows.
