Temple

written by: Kushal Poddar

@Kushalpoe

 

The first pilgrim chronicles the second
how she longed for her brothers' hush-hush
stash of magazines, dreamed to amass
all those movies her parents bowdlerized.
And along came net, freed everything,
made her a tad disappointed.

The second pilgrim nods. Says,
they should use the last rest room.
The summit bears. Temple opens
when they silence their cellphones.

The first disagrees; she is the silence withheld.
