a crowd
loves a spectacle
and I
abandoned myself sans shame 
to melt into the mob

and watch him juggle fire

It is Diwali today- possibly my FAVOURITE day of the Indian year.
Games with fire/earthen oil lamps lining the city/the smell of marigolds/Laxmi’s footsteps/the hint of winter

Happy Diwali! Now go play with some fire…
