Grihapravesh

Right foot first,
she remembered,
as she stepped into her house
for the millionth time

Her faith
kept making
new beginnings
amidst old failings.

Deity On Bose Marg

I am here -
Towering above you.
Sinewy arms,
Sparkling eyes,
And glistening beads of sweat.

I am here
and I am your God
peddling my religion
of cool

I am here
And I intend
To make you in My image.
Come, follow me.
