Mongoloid Electronics

Worm holes to Seoul &  Tokyo
Start at the Meitei village
Secret routes lead to black markets
Cheap Akai VCRs &
Sony sound systems
Hidden beneath
an incomprehensible tongue
A closed community with
free licenses to miniskirts
and promiscuity

A church looms in the distance
Where teenagers wed
with a band that plays Guns n Roses
With Electric guitars
Pioneer amplifiers

While we listen to sad Tagore songs
On an old Philips radio

(dedicated to the time I grew up in a small town called LALA in Assam.And I dont mean offense to any community.Its just a childhood feeling I am trying to put into words.)
