Song of sadness

At the back of the bus, the twins are asleep
Mother wonders: how she will feed
The hungry rakshashas in their stomach

One summer afterrnoon, I finally woke up
Sun rays accumulated outside my window
They want to use the cloakroom, before they proceed

She is humming a song of sadness

I try to conceal it in my pocket
Before it becomes an epidemic
