SUGAR CANDY~by Indira Sadanandan


 

 

SUGAR CANDY

“Hillo! what you do now
My dear wife ?”
“……………………………”
“Our baby is sleeping in the cradle
I have a lot work
To wash clothes
Make bread toast and omelette
For break fast “
“……………………………….”
“Too much hot in Dubai now?”
“……………………………………”
“O k take care,.. bye “,
A conversation by a four year old
In his childhood vocabulary
Over land phone
When it rang.
Stopped talking when his mother
Came in after shopping out and
Began to cry aloud on finding no
Sugar candy for him with her
In her shopping bag
