English at an Indian

Wedding, sitting in

The crowd among

The drums and

Auspices like weeds

Among the cultivated

Saries with their

Yellow and magenta

Blue topaz and

Peridot sheen.

 

Looking on Indians,

At home in their religion.

At One with

Whatever it is that

Made them.

The English hope It made them too,

When they come to looking

In the dusty files labelled

Wedding, funeral, birth.

 

God and gods and people and family weave

Together and in this

Web, the couple

Catch the tricks

They need,

Sharing the cords,

Keeping them taught

With Love,

The remover of all obtacles,

Ganesh.

Mary moo Mary

You were there

When the blossom

Came, Mary you

Were there when

The winter

Went, Mary you

Are here just like

A Gran.

Standing ironing

Sitting moaning,

Laughing, crying,

Listening to ‘Lipstick

On your collar,’

Telling tales from

The betting shop or

You and Marge’s

Latest trip to Wimpy,

 Brian, Moreen

Leighton,

Patrick the Irish

Queer next door.

Have some more

Cream slice,

Bread pudding,

You’ll buy four for

For me,  ‘Only a paahnd

Fifty’, to take home.

Or pie and mash for sister.

YOu? No, no you

Don’t eat like

You used to,

In the caravan,

Round, happy,

Just the sun and

Slot machines and

Walks along

The sea, girls

On leads, so’s

We dont ‘draaan’.

 

Please remember,

We thank you

And love you like a

Gran.
