#Kashmiri Apples

Hard rural boys,

dark skinned in their

six hundred rupees

pants – bought on the

roadside, wanted to

get them beautiful

Kashmiri girls when BJP

moved forces into the state;

“white babes, with cheeks

like apples – darlings me

marry yous, wanna be my


So I told them, perhaps

women from their family

would like those beautiful

Kashmiri men and I

watched their faces

change as their wooden

skulls cracked under

bigotry’s heavyweight!
