Poem – Chewing Slowly – Kabir 

Chewing slowly, 

Only after I’d eaten

My grandmother, 

Mother, 

Son-in-law, 

Two brothers-in-law, 

And father-in-law 

(His big family included) 

In that order, 

And had for dessert 

The town’s inhabitants, 

Did I find, says Kabir, 

The beloved that I’ve become 

One with.
