Twenty- eight year old Brahmin girl,
having been stripped of most of her religion
and almost all her dignity thereafter,
super-religious youthinAsia
of any faith, as long as he has it.
You can be antiabortion, antifeminist,
antiapartheid, anticolonialist, antisemicolonialist,
anti-climax (God forbid).
But remember this as we grow old:
If you love me well enough,
then kill me when I’m ill enough.
