Swayambhu (monkey temple)

Today a monkey
stole my chapatti.
To be fair,
he probably needed it
far more than me.
So i called this instinct
and laughed into my chai.

Made me wonder
how much i have taken
from the worldly temple
in which i live.
And how often i too
have called this ‘instinct,’
without ever truly
was the need.
