More Than a Glass

She ambles to that corner
Every now and then
She keeps telling Anna
It’s not about men
It’s not about bayana*
I don’t need the yen
I just want to be finer

Anna would always tell her
What shows in the looking glass
Is not who you really are
Not even a magnifying glass
May tell if you can murder
So take away the sunglass
And look into your character

*An Indian term used to denote the advance payment or token money given to the landlord to informally freeze negotiations on a particular property, after the initial terms and conditions have been formalized.
