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.
