Poem - Madras - Arundhathi Subramaniam

(Courtesy: Where I Live: New and Selected Poems, Bloodaxe Publishers, UK, 2009)

I was neither born nor bred here.
 But I know this city

       of casuarina and tart mango slices,
       gritty with salt and chilli
       and the truant sands of the Marina,

 the powdered grey jowls of film heroes,
Read the poem in the site
