it’s what you don’t see that matters

The List:

carrot, eggplant, arbi,

capsicum, green peas -

press one for more options -

apples, new list apps

applesauce and ketchup

not Heinz but the cheaper one,

a new pressure cooker because the whistle doesn't work

And with each tweak it tizzles out more,

theek nahi hai, yaar

no matter how many times you take it in,

it's just jugaad again,

a permanent temporary fix,

so we need a new one, stainless

steel and big, bara

to cook all of your dreams.

grand total rages against your wallet,

paper thin but it's digital,

anyway, your eyes glaze, blaze

as the bag boy, too tired, too hassled,

too underpaid squishes the eggs

beneath the cooker

the shells quake in your eardrums

the smell of something rotten

beneath all those discounts.
