Monsoon Musings Poem by AtreyaSarma Uppaluri


[For Mamta Agarwal who has set it off with her Monsoon At Peak, Muse India, Jul 23,2009]

Monsoon at peak
Men sucked
Into manholes

Monsoon at peak
Clogged drains
Traffic snarls

Monsoon at peak
Anticipating it
The bill-keen contractor
Patches up the road
Just the day before

Monsoon at peak
Pushing my car
Dripping with sweat

Monsoon at peak
Drinking water
And drain
In illicit sex

Monsoon at peak
Dogs and birds
Waiting in starvation
Along with beggars

Monsoon at peak
Bespectacled
Wishing
They had wipers

Monsoon at peak
Reluctant shutting
Of doors and windows
Mopping the ‘power’less floor
In dark suffocation

Monsoon at peak
Tickets sold out
Match cancelled

Monson at peak
Shopkeepers
Counting raindrops

Monsoon at peak
Mother earth
Having bath
To heart’s content

Monsoon at peak
Inexpensive honeymoon
For newly weds

Monsoon at peak
Mamta
In her torrent of poetry
