Five Priests

Five priests
Raise fire
Into night

On Ganga banks
At Shiva’s

Where people come
To see
The sight

Some pray
Some pay
In boats
Packed tight

While I
Am there
Just to

The many
Ways of
Human rites

On stage
In boats
Upon the steps

The world
To me
Seems Very

Just up the river a bit, a young boy is also performing this ritual.
