Mel Utarna Mushkil Lagta Hai

saare din ke mel ko

jism se utarna mushkil lagta hai

sar ko din bhar ki dhuul se

farigh karna

aur phir gardan ke kaale daere ko

halka karna

sabun ke bulbulon se

phir ahista ahista un golaiyon ki taraf

badhna

jin par mel kabhi nahin chadhta

zara si tirchhi

ek taraf ko jhuki hui

sada ki chamki-chamkai

unhen main ab nahin dhoti

phir ubhre hue pet par

barson ka pasina

jame hue chewing-gum ki tarah

kabhi nahin utarta

sabun ke jhaag ke bulbule tezi se

us par phutte rahte hain

aur phir be-hangam kulhon ki

baari aati hai

kabhi jab men chalti thi

to sar-phire palat palat kar

un ke utarne chadhne ko

ghurte rahte the

naaf se le kar naŠł≥hunon tak

sabun be-Dol jhaag banata hai

jhaag aur poron ki ankh-micholi

jo mel pasina ban kar bah jaati hai

ab jism se mel utarna

mushkil lagta hai
