Synopsis: She writes about women swimming against the flow, who create resonance and disorder at once in their emergence. In writing about animals, she also seeks to explore the possible fractures in nature that can result from natural processes violently changed by humans.

Under these rapid waters
a train that arrived years ago, during the monsoon rains,
brings her back for the nth time
to its platform
of cobble and rush
and the phrases of those who sank inside
emerge to glisten and spray in her face
as she tries to read their words
from this quiet roar
That was an uneasy summer
blue deer filled the fields -
it took days to wash them out
shouting Leeho, Leeho -chasing the dark rustle
a whole river of them
swallowed ripe grains like windows
one by one
she leans further
into the twist and flash of flow,
watches the passengers filing out like fish
thigh-deep in sleep
