साहिब

कुछ इस अदा से
कहा उसने
'काफ़िर हो तुम,
तुम्हारा इरादा काफ़िर.
आलिम सब हमारे,
हमारे सब जाकिर'
तंगदिल, निजाम की हरकतें ऐसी
खुद साहिब के ईमान की सारी दलील
बेतासीर

letters

letters
that i write for him
you write for her
and we read for each other.
letters
that never reach him
that never reach her
and we keep together.
letters
we close
to dispose someday
letters
that we now embrace.
