Patience

August 15, 2012

Watch the vendor lay out prunes and ginger for sale; right along bath towels and crisp diamond hair clips.

A girl watches from her home’s doorway, braids ribbon-ed unevenly. There are ladoos to help roll today, chappatis to flatten and corners to wipe clean. A cat can be seen sneaking past her. He has a tryst with the house pet. Most of the kittens will be eaten soon after they are born. One peppery one will survive.
