Multiplex

Where the restlessness of our narrow gullies finds respite 
As we breathe in the wintry air locked inside the cinema screen 
Lulling ourselves
Into believing that we, too, residents of the third world,
Struggle with the doubts and dilemmas of the first world,
That beyond scarcity-illness-religion
We are part of the subtle nuances of fine sentiment and existentialism.
