Beware, aware – Bombay, September 2003

.      I refuse to live in fear. 

    I’m flying from my state to the next.

It will be 26 by the end of the month.  

More than half but    I’ll keep travelling.     

 I give myself extra time

to get through the extra security

but that’s all.  

   I’m not changing my life.    

  I do look around myself more.   

  I’m a little more vigilant or aware. 

    I carry pepper spray.    

  But I still don’t have a cell phone.   

   This is right now.        This is my today.

It’s not much but

Maybe someone will write a poem about this.
