Without shelter

Sunil Sharma


Pigeons and crows

Perch on the cable lines

In the neighbourhood—

The feathered citizens

Rendered homeless

By a cynical builder lobby,

For the overpriced

Skyscrapers named after birds.

Sunil Sharma is a Mumbai-based senior academic, critic, literary editor and author with 19 published books: Some solo, some joint.
