"Some of you may have taken history or civics classes that outlined the freedoms one expects in a democracy. At the heart of those freedoms is choice... With an affirmative choice, all democracy vanishes."

The house is packed with people
The men are in the room with the flat screen TV
drinking wine and discussing politics.

The women, though, are in the kitchen,
gossip leaking through the ivory paneled walls
above the scent of warm tandoori chicken
and samosas frying on the grill.

While we’re in the guest room
sipping Starbucks and screwing around with our iPhones
The perfect Indian juxtaposition.
