Skilled at using it: it smears her front teeth

When the living is eeh-zee

4

These grasses stirring with

Insidious life, and bushes with poisonous berries

Unwrap
Bite at them angrily

Surprisingly, it is due to the water, an element that

Removes him from his normal self, and opens out another world of possibilities

7

... Enough to craze anyone

Mosquitoes, midges, gnats

She is lying

In her vomit, her hair streaked in it

9

Then, with a groan, she

Thrusts her finger down her thirst and vomits again, copiously

The distance, flattened and reduced to black and white

Clumsy and impatient care

To take Arun shopping

She has voiced a tentative

Interest in traditional medicines

20

Too quietly because

She gives a start and clutches her neck in fright

21

Leaving now?

She repeats, bewildered

22

An aroma from it

It swamps him, like a river, or like a fire

23

He face spreads

Into a flush of wonder. Thank you, thank you, she repeats.
