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.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.: Currents

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
