Read the poem carefully.
This morning she bought green 'methi' in the market,
choosing the freshest bunch;
picked up a white radish,
imagined the crunch it would make between her teeth,
the sweet sharp taste,
then put it aside,
thinking it an extravagance,
counted her coins out carefully,
tied them,
a small bundle into her sari at the waist;
came home,
faced her mother-in-law's dark looks,
took the leaves and chopped them,
her hands stained yellow from the juice;
cut an onion,
fine and cooked
the whole thing in the pot over the stove,
shielding her face from the heat.

The usual words came and beat
their wings against her:
the money spent,
curses heaped upon her parents,
who had sent her out to darken other people's doors.
