tuned away

dodder into yourself
shudder away newness
and mutter at the buzzing
listen carefully for
anything that sounds familiar
adjust the knobs in your head,
lean back,
and enjoy the world your recreated.
tune yourself into your own century
clatter away at a typewriter
and iron decade-old suits
push away the ties that crackle with newness
and adjust your grey cap
and smile at the world
and tell them confidently
that a hundred rupees is
far too much to pay
for ice-cream that cost one paise
back in the day.
