and replaced the cables
but the electricity
seems no better than before the war.

women sometimes
The brain and the heart

have a range of smells
- fennel, ginger,
leather, ripe date,

but the fun of doing silly,

Denim originated in Indian fishing communities around Bombay (Mumbai) and was the fabric used for Dungarees.

outside the bubble of breeding,
of meat- eaters
- almost a ghetto of one.
