HUNGRY BODIES, HUNGRIER SOULS

By Neel Anil Panicker

As the log burnt, embers  crackled and  lit the night sky.

Amba cupped her warm fingers against her cheeks.

Then drank the brew she’d made.

Centurion Granny was  the sobriquet the street urchins had honoured her with.

She didn’t mind.

It was  a promotion from ‘street kid’.
