She lives beneath
the umbrella
come rain or shine
she shits bathes
dines
of standing up
ever on her two legs
she shows no sign
her life is miserable
monotonous
but she looks fine
when it floods during
the monsoons
she her bent spine
but she never
complains grumbles
or whines
she is my
street inspiration
i share her pain
her pathos
with you online
to a living grave
her dead life
confined
her few clothes
she dries
on the stones
no clothesline
who is she
what is she
a human
bloodline
hidden away
from the chaos
cacophony
of newspaper
headlines
on the mound
of a blog
her decrepit
decadent
decaying
soul
enshrined
dreamless
dilemma
as she waits
for her turn
on a receding
coastline
her winkled brow
her wrinkled hands
her fucked lifeline

Happy New Year 2010
living under an umbrella
at bandra reclamation
waiting to be captured
by my American friend Glenn
a click of a mouse
more powerful than a pen
she sends her regards
to anthony posey aljie
bernie big benn
beneath the umbrella
lies paradise of her den
a virtual pigpen
when she dies
in her squatted sleep
they will bury her here
amen
the rise the fall
of an ill fated
woman

This is the world of sunshine for the umbrella lady of Bandra Reclamation , it gets dark somber morbid when it rains and she hides herself like a tortoise inside the umbrella.


When it rains heavily she still sits where she is sitting this is her karma of lifelong pain.. she cant escape it and I cant escape it too as when I shoot her,
