In Search of Ghalib

Shashank Reddy

By- Shashank Reddy

I wander these empty streets and naked by lanes,

in search of Ghalib.

I look for the prison,

the wine and the brothel,

I search for the drunken shayar,

the screaming whore and the angry pimp.

I search for a thousand dreams such as these,

and find just one,

mine.
