"Dreams, Mr Nyazi, are perfect ideals,
complete in themselves.
How can you impose on them
a constantly changing,
imperfect, incomplete reality?"

just how many times
do I have to tell you
the difference between
empty space


negative space?

negative space- look closely- feel- is filled with promises.
while empty space, you see, just exists-no purpose, no life, no point.

you are my negative space.
with you, anything is possible.

warm summer rain has such memories for me-
playing on daddo dadas 35/s walee chatt with naj and binny-
in the afternoons when the grown-ups slept-
trying not to jump too hard lest they hear us-
it was always august of course- holidays- time off-
splashing in the dips on the roof where the water would fill up-
doing our "mausam mastana" steps- childhood fun

going downstairs chilled to the warmth of the lounge
the grown-ups having tea and pakoras-
watching the rain through the huge window
watching the brown turn green and then brown again
freshly washed hair after playing in the rain-

rain always has such particular songs attached to it-
songs that change as i have changed-
all come flooding back to me-
rain makes me happysad.

the light going
the roads going
the traffic going

despite it all
going to the dogs,
i love
