Mango Pickle

a little yellow
a little green,
then sun dried
in rust courtyards,
the smell of fullers earth
seeps in.
then the winds
carry the sour smell
it reaches me,
when i fly
on my swing
then i wait
for the turmeric and chili paste
so i can dirty my hands ,
and soak them with magic wands
till they look
so irresistible.
that i'm weak to wait
for my next meal....
