Indian Shop Nostalgia (For Sharmishtha)

Indian Music

I remember Mulal

The Indian shopkeeper

Taking my mother’s order

With an overhead gaze

Seized by Indian music

Patiently waiting

For my choice of candy

How someone else

Had peppered sardines

With bread and Spur Cola

While a broken heart

Grievously sang

Of committing suicide
