Poetry

Khair by Kartikay

The Urdu word that means “good”
and often used to say “well-being”,
is also used as an act of letting go

Kitchens Through Which I Have Traveled by Mehnaz Sahibzada

the haunted one in a crumbling haveli,
where I mistook my Dadi for a ghost,

the cube one in Taif where I fried peas
with cumin & ghee, listening to Arabic television,

the humid one in Tampa where we baked
a birthday cake for my toy donkey,

The last announcement in the metro before it was closed down by Harsh Anand

Owing to the pandemic,
we will be suspending our services
indefinitely.
We urge all of you
to look outside the windows
for the rest of your journey
before you forget what your
city looks like.
