r.i.p shutter & butter

” I have bought a new flat, branded furniture, new bed, new…” she went outside to announce and returned.

At 3 o’clock I saw her holding a photo album and legging it. As she stepped inside, she mistakenly trod on the painting laid on the floor for drying.

“Awww you paint! Geez Louise, it’s awful!” Spitting out of her unrequited disgust she vaulted over the painting.

“The painting I have brought home yesterday, do you know who is t he artist? M. F. Husain!” She said, preening before the mirror and batting her eyes.

After juggling her dress she adjusted her bra straps and plonked in the couch.

I offered her tea in the cup called ‘Butter’ while I sipped from ‘Shutter’.

“Do you still go hunting?” I asked

“Nah…I am suffering from loose stools nowadays” she changed the video and rested the remote on the side table.

Unfortunately, I dropped Shutter and shattered it. At the same time, she smashed Butter into the wall and smeared my wall. The home was in an absolute shambles.

She describes herself as -- a soulmate, a life alighted on the earth catching the rhythm passing by her. A tinge of joy colours her world and lays its feet on the land where revellers are awaiting her to get into the groove.
