sun dries my hair
thick and sopping with
dahi, coconut oil,

self-care is prosperity

sun dries my hair

thick and sopping with curd, coconut oil,

on the terrace

I peer into the endlessness

of all four directions and

the summer haze

does not halt my lack of hesitation, inhibition.

lokhi hands release the robe and

I embrace the morning sun.

*lokhi is a reference to Lakshmi. Sometimes someone will tell you that you have "lakshmi/lokhi hands" and that means you'll bring in prosperity.
