Lady Macbeth

At  center of stage, our own Lady Macbeth
Wrings bloody hands in Arabian perfumes
For audience ghosts, wiping British tears .

We are natives privileged to repeat history
Acting out a few mealy mouthed dialogues.
But we still love playing the white ghosts.

(After visiting the Gaiety theater in Shimla)
