When Bangalore's Bread Winner


when stock market reports feature
cairo, sao paulo, bangalore,

i'll know the world is better,
serious about knowing the cure

for its hunger to feel no tears,
that pain is no exchange for joy,

that poverty has no currency
with health, that high

growth models are possible.
when we work with the trees

and animals, then i'll know.
