Nest on my head

In 1962

i found

a nest

on my head

with two eggs

one cracked

one ceramic

which was which

I couldn’t tell

Next year

there were three

and with them

a note

take care of

our love children

feed them sunshine

it was her

the one I shared

an apartment with

in Nizamuddin East

on a lawyer’s pay

in 1954

with no art to

decorate our house

but two eggs

and a stolen

payphone.
