10:10 am November

10:10 in the morning

of another November

October hangs upon the wall

Waiting to be turned

but too inanimate to do it itself


No one told the sparrows

They are probably still a month back

trying to stretch out their lives


The potted plant too doesn’t know

Nothing in the way it leans upon

the centre support

or the way its tendrils droop

indicates that it cares


Must get up and do it myself then

Turn October into November

as if it will change my air
