five tin sheets

i live in a room

that is five tin sheets put together…

eight people

all from the same village…

delhi is a strange city

but we don’t mind it…

it’s certainly not home

(pause)

i miss my grandfather’s paddy fields…we used to fly kites there…

(pause)

but delhi is okay…not bad…
