Ganges

GANGES

from the train station
there is a maze of narrow alleys
taking you down to the Ganges

where summer’s breath
mixed with the grey film
hanging over the city
whispers life is a ghost

in the shelters of the homeless
veiled widows endure their lives in
a frightening state of
solitude

the ghats of the city crowded by people
waiting for that moment
their existence gets carried away by
the everlasting monotony of the river
