Maamalaa Sangeen Hai
ghaaTee hai... ek aurat

usee sadiyon puraanee deg men...
Khud ke gosht ko pakaatee

kataraa dar kataraa
Khud ko Khudee se... karatee halaal

burḳe kee aaḌ men
deedaar naheen ho paate

us bezaan zism ke
risate lothaḌe...
jin se chootaa hai lahoo
lamhaa dar lamhaa

judaaee kee zalaalat
itanee khaufanaak hai
kee
baa(n)dh letee hai... izaaraband
aahistaa se...

karavaT letee hai
risataa hai thoḌaa lahoo

aur ra(n)geen dikhatee hai
jheel
sh sh... haule se

andar kee baaten
baahar naa aa jaaen...
uThataa hai babaal

ek aur mard
taiyaar hai
apanaa izaaraband thaame,

chup ho...
kaaTane lagatee hai
Khud kaa gosht
aur pakaatee hai
saalan

kisee zalazale kee hee bisaat hai
jo ulaT de
vo degachee...
aur bach paae ghaaTee
