birds chirping in hindi, voices laced with nectar, & i, a babbling instrument of baby fat & midnight tears. ahmedabad was unequivocally alluring; eruptions of gulmohar trees shedding golden blossoms on the pastel green masjid, the unabandoned comfort in watching my grandfather read his newspaper in the courtyard, crossed-legged, snowy santa beard. what a pity, what a misery that lovely, lovely place really was.


birds chirping in arabic, heat waves cascading like throbbing streams of blood, & i, a tiny towering stack of lies & inflamed fury. dubai was a dream that slithered between my immigrant fingers, postcards of glassy buildings & the finery i knew i could never seduce. there is an odd solace in accepting your lot in life; monumental agony, crumbling thrones, & how i fancied myself to be ozymandias.

    "dubai was a dream that slithered between my immigrant fingers, postcards of glassy buildings & the finery i knew i could never seduce."
    goodness, this line was so pretty and eye-opening--your figurative language never ceases to amaze me.
