kingfisher backyard
likes the saltwater lagoon
no beer for malarials


small birds like compost
gulab jamun thrown backyard
where are you rodents?


one day in future
i will floss every day
for at least one day

have few littler red circles
it means i will live

chinese clinic
but black clinician
no fortune cookie

i dont want to live (only)
