At the Galleria Shopping Mall
BY TONY HOAGLAND
Just past the bin of pastel baby socks and underwear,
there are some 49-dollar Chinese-made TVs;
one of them singing news about a far-off war,
one comparing the breast size of an actress from Hollywood
to the breast size of an actress from Bollywood.
When I’m depressed, I watch movies—especially Bollywood films. The more weddings the better so I was on a Bollywood High in Jaipur last January for the opening of Dolly Ki Doli— a 2015 Indian comedy-drama film about a young woman who is a con artist. Because Dolly’s modus operandi is to love them then leave them—with all they own—there are many, many weddings in Dolly Di Doli. Silly and predictable but a whole lot of fun!!!
Raj Mandir Cinema by Alice-Catherine Jennings
Doli, a FIVE POINT
SOMEONE a looteri
dulhan, a high shine
thief ululating calls
loud whee-oh torry-
yu mellow & fluffy
she patterns thievery
like the colors of
pink blue blue pink
crash the boy’s heart
then another crashed
heart “no need to repeat!
