Pension

You are looking at this person
In canopy where he was under
A black and white photograph
Where he continuously stared.

Person had his body in clothes
That are now given to laundry
Not for a wash but for wearing.
(A dhobhi wears dead clothes
Less person’s inbuilt sarcasm)

His number is missing in files.
You cant say he is not person
Or he had not lived in person.
See clothes dhobhi is wearing.
Please give us our due pension.
