MARTIN JERVIS Natural Power (India)
The spice plantation is a cool humidified screen of trees. Shrubs and plants and warm mist on the wing blend spice scents white, black and red peppers pungent cumin, peeling cinnamon, trident cloves nutmeg marbles, turmeric not made yellow and cardamom pods. On a rough hewn pathway through the middle of somewhere dark and leafy, is a white-washed house a plantation owner built a century past. Stumble and fall over an ancient generator living alongside a concrete enclosure zoo-ing five white gristled cattle and a floor pile of idling dung steam rising gently in the mottled shade. The cast iron museum piece of rust ridden junk provides power to the dirt white house year round through drought and monsoon. A man in speckled white dungarees points a worn out callused finger he grins and gesticulates towards a half hanging hinged vent of iron. Makes a simple statement. "And this is where we put the shit."

JH: language subtlety battles the 'natural'. Humidified, generator, gesticulates are Latinate human words, artificial down to the koine, 'zoo-ing'. Nature attempts return in phrases such as 'rough hewn', 'rust ridden junk'; and it is in 'natural' language that nature wins the battle.

JANET I. BUCK
Scarlet Rain
When bombs left craters in the streets like broken plates with parts of people for their food. When bodies seemed just tags clipped off a brand new shirt still folded in a tissue prayer. When certainty was a straw hut lit in sorrow's rampant flame, you told yourself among the screams, it was, when all was said and done, the juggernaut of a wartime waltz. A baby was born in the back of a gutted bus christened by the falling stars of bullets finding target plots. Her lace-stitched booties seemed like veiled innocence. Her father in a heap of blood. An M-16 her first new toy. Wooden slats of cradled hours, blankets cross-stitched with her name, nipples of a saxophone that needed meat of music now. Between the licks of terror's tongue came cries of hope that gave the wobbled table why? a brand new set of fingerprints. Painful joy, a scrapbook full of could have been's in cinders, fallen monuments. Birth, the saddle sore of grief, demanding love's deliverance. A butterfly that breaks thick seams of slimy caterpillar time, emerging from the soot and dust in sovereign rites of tenderness uniting continents untied. All we've crushed with mortar sticks throwing wholeness on our cheeks - gravel spray on sunlit roads - a patch of grass around gray stone.
