Smog and dust mix with the air in New Delhi.
I buy jasmine for her hair in New Delhi.
People come from everywhere to this city;
all are welcomed with a stare in New Delhi.
The finest things in life don’t come without danger-
eat the street food, if you dare, in New Delhi?
There is nothing you can’t find in our markets-
socks and dreams sell by the pair in New Delhi.
So many families on the street through the winter;
sometimes good men forget to care in New Delhi.
Friends ask, Michael, why’d you leave your own country?
I found jasmine for her here, in New Delhi.
