The last lorry came to a halt

on the highway

Baby has had his burp

Lullaby is too sleepy to go on

Gas stove is cleaned of dinner


Chalk line of Laxman Rekha

drawn around it

Moon has climbed upstairs

Night watchman’s stick has

Struck one back street

That single piece of chocolate cake

tempts in the refrigerator

I unhook my bra strap

So that my sleep is free

With the last wish on the

Last star, someday

 let him undo it…..
