And This Happens Everyday

6 a.m.
There needs to be some understanding who does what
you get to make morning tea, I cook breakfast and lunch
you get back from work and fix dinner.

8 p.m.

You are in a meeting and don’t take calls
I roll rotis and make Kashmiri dum aloo. Then you call me:
Dearest, I’ll be home in half hour to cook dinner.
