House Insurance by Nikita Biswal

Art by Hiratsuka Un'ichi When I am gone,

Remember to put the cover

on the TV set at night

buy only plastic flowers

for the yellowed-ceramic vase

over the refrigerator

lay a newspaper

on your shelves

before piling it with your shirts

bring out the Kashmiri rug

when we have guests

and glass cups

from the side-cupboard

and please don’t

paint the walls white

they’ll only gather dust with time.
