the arrival of their trains.
to find buyers for their biriyani.
cry and whine
for the chocolates they didn't get.

or the other.
Some people alone
continue to sleep
even in the presence of light;
even in the presence of awakening light.
P.S: The last verse is a tribute to Robert Graves's poem "She Tells Her Love While Half Asleep"
