A paint shop…

A local meeting point,
Like a coffee house,

Near Gaw Kadal Bridge
Where he sat behind a counter

With shoulders of an ox
Selling dreams, selling colours.

A lighthouse, in our youth, for watching
College girls

And political fireworks. An address for
Receiving our letters

Meeting our friends
And colouring our paradigms.

Like an Epicurean Garden
To commune, to debate

Our idols and ideals, to discuss
Cricket, movies and music, to

Sketch rainbows with the hands of time
On our Tabula Rasa.

( for Majeed Toth)
