At dVerse Punam is hosting poetics with an invitation to write a poem choosing four words from a list all with an Indian flavour (noting the month of celebrations culminating in the feast of Diwali).
The words I have chosen are: Bangles, chit, Chutney, cashmere.
“… chutney reigns on my plate.” Robyn Brittow
Ever To Remind The retro, well, that's what I call it, always playing yesterday's music on loop, the Bangle's have been around twice in an hour since the barista hung the chit for our espresso, the steak sandwich arrived while we mused about the the weather pouring in, daunting slabs of bread weighing the table down, the waiter saying steak and chuckney. You picked yours up and gorged your cheeks full, the chutney oozing through your lips sweet and sticky, such a passionate celebration, dark drops falling to the rise of your bright orange cashmere sweater, ever to remind.
