udasi ek laDki hai

december ki ghani raaton mein
jab baadal barasta hai
larazti khamushi
jab baal khole
corridoron mein sisakti hai
to aatish-dan ke aage
kahin se wo dabe-panw
mere pahlu mein aati hai
aur apne marmarin hathon se
mere baal suljhate hue
sargoshiyon mein dard ke qisse sunati hai
july ki do-pahren
mumtiyon se jab utar kar
aanganon mein phail jati hain
aur ek aawara sannata
chhaton par bhaari qadmon se
badi aahistagi ke sath chalta hai
to wo chupke se mere pas aati hai
aur apne dhime lahje mein
wo sari dastanen kah sunati hai
jinhen sun kar main dhimi aanch par
pahron sulagta hun
kisi girje ke viran lawn mein
jab january
apne sunahri gesuon ko khol kar
koi purana git gati hai
to wo ek an-chhui nan ki tarah
patthar ke benchon par
mere kandhe pe sar rakkhe
mere chehre pe apni ungliyon se
sog likhti hai
kisi wadi ke tanha dak-bangle mein
kabhi jab sham roti hai
siyah kafi ke pyalon se
lapakti bhap mein
baaton ke biscuit phul jate hain
to wo bhi jangali belon se
uthti khushbuon se jism pati hai
mere nazdik aati hai
meri sanson ki pagdandi pe
dhire dhire chalti hai
mere andar utarti hai

khat khat kaun? sabiha! kaise? yunhi, koi kaam nahin
pichhli raat bhyanak garage kya kuchh ho anjam nahin
mera zimma main bhugtungi tum par kuchh ilzam nahin
hum hain us akhlaq ke pairaw, hum hain us tahzib ke log
jis mein iffat ek mafruza ismat jis mein 'zehni rog
jazbon par pahre bithlana kya sauda-e-kham nahin?
do bachchon ke bap to kya hai? dil ka ho insan jawan
tum bhi aise ban jao na jaise manjhle bhai jaan
sali aur salaj par lattu, biwi se hammam nahin
un se wo tahzib se unchi, chhote bhai se waqti chah
shauhar aae na aae lekin dewar ki takti hain rah
khwahish ki takmil bhi jari, shadi bhi nakaam nahin
naukar aur namak aur mazhab in tawilon se baz aao
mardon ki aisi neki par aa jata hai mujh ko taw
aurat ke honton par thappa ab maqbul-e-am nahin
hafta bhar mein ek din aisi laghzish koi aib nahin
zahir hai papa mammy ko hasil ilm-e-ghaib nahin
kali raaton ki baaton se waqif subh-o-sham nahin
jati hun, ghabraate kyun ho? kya andhiyari ghor nahin?
do dil raazi ke bare mein qazi ka kuchh zor nahin
lo ye das ka note tumhaari ujrat hai inam nahin

muqabla-e-husn

kulhon mein bhanwar jo hain to kya hai
sar mein bhi hai justuju ka jauhar
tha para-e-dil bhi zer-e-pstan
lekin mera mol hai jo in par
ghabra ke na yun gurez-pa ho
paimaish meri khatm ho jab
apna bhi koi uzw napo!

kosa dudh

to ye dudh kosa hai!
ye dudh hai aur kosa hai
jis se badan ki nasen ungh jati hain
jis se mere dil ki ba-qaeda dhadkanon mein
izafe ki surat nahin
ye wahi dudh hai jis ko farhad ki garmi-e-shauq ne
biston ki siyah chotiyon se utara
tu is ke lahu ki hararat ka juya hua
phir bhi kosa raha
ye wahi dudh hai
chandni ban ke jo garmiyon ke kisi mah ki chaudhwin raat ko
aasman par zamin par dilon mein nigahon mein
bahta hai lekin
kisi ke labon ko jalata nahin hai
ye suraj ka saya hai lawa nahin hai!
tum apne piyale ko bhatti mein rakh do!
ki ye dudh ubalta rahe
ye pyala bhi dhal jae
ye dudh jal jae
aur is tarah mushk-e-nafa bane
jis ki khushbu ki taqat na lae koi shakhs bhi
jis ki khushbu se har maghz se khun bahne lage!

ek sakit raat ka azab

mere bedroom mein zero ke balb ki
lahu-rang raushni sahmi hui hai
lihaf odhe badan tute pade hain
sirhane jagte hain narm bose
dahakti hain khumar-alud aankhen
mahakti hain, ukhadti garm sansen
magar sanson mein dil atke hue hain
lahu-rang raushni sahmi hui hai
main kachchi nind se jaga hua hun
wo kachchi umr ki tuti hui hai

ecstasy

sabz maddham raushni mein surkh aanchal ki dhanak
sard kamre mein machalti garm sanson ki mahak
bazuon ke sakht halqe mein koi nazuk badan
silwaten malbus par aanchal bhi kuchh dhalka hua
garmi-e-rukhsar se dahki hui thandi hawa
narm zulfon se mulaem ungliyon ki chhed-chhad
surkh honton par shararat ke kisi lamhe ka aks
reshmin banhon mein chudi ki kabhi maddham khanak
sharmgin lahjon mein dhire se kabhi chahat ki baat
do dilon ki dhadkanon mein gunjti thi ek sada
kanpte honton pe thi allah se sirf ek dua
kash ye lamhe thahar jaen thahar jaen zara!
