Man with that rucksack

Surely somebody up there
Must be holding earth up,

To  an empty sky and stars,
And else from their falling.

Except in the Leopold café
Where bodies fall behind

Young man with rucksack
Has a sky view,  thoughts.

A man with that rucksack,
Rakes bodies’ autumn-fall.

(In a 2008 terrorist attack at least 10 people eating in Leopold cafe were killed as part of a series of similar attacks in different parts of Mumbai)
