If I were to choose

(how limitedly, arrogantly European an idea!)
a subsequent human life (rather than an Ebola virus)
I would not be an archæologist, nor a wine-maker,
nor an atheist undertaker,
nor a bee-keeper,
nor a shepherd,
nor a plumber, nor even a blessèd
and soon-to-be defunct  street-sweeper,
nor an anthropologist, nor a lord-leaper
nor a holy sewage-treater...
I would choose
(and Euro-Americans and Jews
would call me stupid)
to be be a humble and hopeless interpreter
of the abstract, meditational, passionately
dispassionate music called Dhrupad.
