I hate winter. It keeps its
door open. It’s so cold I can’t
pronounce your name and
instead I have to watch
the Speaker and Home Minister
on the BBS TV.
I had no idea what “rebuttal”
means, to me it sounds like hitting
someone again and again
with the butt of a gun.
Maybe it is. Dictionary could be wrong.
What is right and wrong
when everything can be “rebutted”.
Trust me! Thimphu is cold in winters.
It stiffens your lips and
tongues need to be kept warm with
Chinese kerosene heaters.
I think Mongar is warmer, and you know
I will be able to pronounce your name.
I will call you if I ever go there,
if I reach there,
if I swim in Kurichu.
It was my dream to swim in Kurichu
naked in shameful summers.
Who told you that I have to pay
to swim in Kurichu? I thought it’s a free river.
Thimphu is too cold. Lets us all go there before
the river has a thram number.
