Sreedhar Vinnakota

Fum​es

The bungalow gets scrubbed

and decked in a fresh coat

of pungent water-proof paint

and waits for the growth

of shoots in the back

yards, to complete the dream

look of the designer home.

 

Across the road, the ramshackle

tin-roofed tenements that house

the poor hiss like serpents

as the first rains arrive.
