Of Vets, Pets, And Auto Rickshaw Drivers - Poem by Islahuddin Nasiruddin Syed

My bike I didn't have
Walked to the main road
Rabbit in the basket I waited.
Our other rabbit was missing his mate
Hailed an auto rickshaw
Wanted to and fro
He agreed
I was happy
He demanded extra 20 bucks
I denied; settled for 10 extra
We cursed under our breaths

Mobile game kept me busy all the way
Reached the vet clinic
The driver followed me in
Our rabbit Choti had an abscess
Me and wifey empathised; she had also cried
Vet cleaned the wound
Driver watched in disbelief
He asked hell of questions
I answered most

Found another rabbit owner
His rabbit had an abscess too
Poor guys the rabbit owner
Auto driver contemplating
He looked into the store
While I paid the vet's fee
He was checking cat food
The shop owner look puzzled
I took him out while he asked
Another flurry of cat questions
I asked him why
He said he owned a cat
His house one hall one kitchen
He spoke of the kitten's potty training

I; a previous owner of cats
Gave him tips and all
He said he likes people
Who like animals
He said his wife was annoyed
The cat defecated in places not meant to be
His wife was away
But he took care of the kitty
The kitty acknowledges his love
She runs between his legs following him
His day long turmoil
Of collecting a few extra bucks
Seemed invested in a cat
At least that’s what I thought.

He told me his cat stories
I told him our rabbit stories
A poor guy with a big heart
He fed her milk and boiled liver
He said he gave money
To his neighbour to feed
The little kitten
Even in his absence
The long stretch seemed too short
We saw each other in different lights
We cursed at ourselves under our breaths
Coz we had cursed each other under our breaths earlier

I reached home
The auto driver left
Our rabbit ran to her mate
Then ran away under the bed
Friends were editing a video
The rabbit sat in pain
The auto driver was rich with cat knowledge
I was confused; then went blank!
