Ennui-burned eyes peering out of a car.
Plimsoll, A child. His father, Hawaii chappals.
Walking. Playing. Smiling.
Father doubling up as teacher.
Pavement. Scattered grains. Sparrows.
Drops of water down a random pipe. One pigeon.
The skirling screams of kids killing their days away
The music from inside the expensive car
speakers - so advanced they produce notes to a clarity
the human ear can't even appreciate.
The sudorific sight of a cartpuller. A saliferous shirt.
Droplets on a dark nose. Oops.
Oops, fingers to the remote control. Now! Lower
Fold Economic Times. Peer out once more.
Recline better to worry better.
Relax. It's never too hot to wear your
pellicles of sophistication.
