Black for bad and White for good
With a spinning canvas background

The desert sits behind them

Soon the roars were followed,
By the gush of wind...

Nescafe Nights by Kajal Bhatkal
There's something called Nescafe Nights,
Written upon midnight kitchen counters,
As I sway to your voice,
On a phone whose connection
Is keen on abruption.
During these Coffee wafted midnights,
Conversations...

as I drift along these mournful days.
Not sad for a life lost to death,

made with Crisco, never butter.
