quarantine curfew
couldn’t contain her.

stir crazy

quarantine curfew couldn't contain her

calloused toes tread

across splintered pavement

sunsoaked,

steaming and

she laughs at the burn, the silence

a police officer swings his bat

at the vegetable vendor

sitting on the roadside before

his contraband -

potatoes, onions, coriander and

narrow watermelons.

the officer turns away from her

kajal smudged eyes,

her beet-violet mask and

dusty dupatta trailing behind her heels,

dirty but somehow more enchanting.
