mi plano existencial de experiencia y las inmensas llanuras aluviales de Yamuna
crean un ángulo
inversamente proporcional a la renta de mi casa.
si hay un auto en la calle
el auto en la calle puede transformarse en varios autos
puede ser editado como un video clip.
hay una boda en el segundo piso
y aquí estoy, un extraño feliz como un voyeur sin una razón creíble
vivir puede ser como fumar pasivamente.
puedo escalar esta ciudad como un lagarto contra la gravedad
puedo rodar esta ciudad como viejas cintas fotográficas
Puedo leer y deconstruir esta ciudad.
Nací en una casa sin número. Solo conocía esa casa
como los sonidos de los brazaletes de mi madre. Simplemente lo sabía.
Ahora vivo en una ciudad múltiple que se multiplica verticalmente en una compleja matriz de números.
