three rectangular mirrors,

eye to eye.

photos of a white lady
her colorful hair.

Colbo herbal skin bleach cream
Vinkam lather shaving cream
Le Wilson peroxide 12 % 40 vol.

a heap
of hair near…
near the dustbin.

newspaper on the chair
waiting. (breathing stops)

charcoal mask cream
the barber’s towel, sprayer
shaving brush
Telugu talks

lights off offer namaaz,
back to an artist rendition.
tiny stickers
of gods on the roadside
transparent glass.

dead hairs look alive.
