Three shorts on a Sunday

Mrs Bose chose Rabindro Sangeet
Over Das Kapital
Since it meant Bengali sarees and rosagullas

The churchbell rang
As Tuka stood on the steps with a red clothbag
Selling agarbatti
At 40 paise a piece
To the warkaris
Attending Sunday Mass

Why do my words catch fungi
By the time
I transfer them onto a slate
