Things That A Bra Contains 

By Kanupriya Dhingra

Mobile phones, candies,
shopping lists, stretch marks,
your gaze, cash and coins,
cuss words and their meanings,
and, at times, also,
a pair of breasts —
Things that a bra contains

Because there were never
enough pockets
in our bonnets and blouses.

Kanupriya Dhingra is a research scholar at the Department of English, University of Delhi. She writes and translates in English, Hindi and Punjabi.
