Saturday Mart

This is a mart of Saturday
mart to buy roots and roots
that appear to be skinned eye-less fishes
white cold and naked.

And some betel-leaves.

And some asters.

Leg askance on leg
foot-fingers hooked to foot-fingers
toe to toe
let us eat our ice-cream

or strike a bharat-natyam pose
with knee up
and scoops of pudding in our hands.
