Travelling Palm<br />

Snapshots<br />

Tamara Chatterjee<br />

India (December, 2016) – I was excited to<br />

return to Varanasi; on my second visit we<br />

arranged several boat rides, the first to view<br />

the evening Aarti spectacle from beyond the<br />

sacred shore. It was the first Hindu ritual<br />

that I have encountered that felt more like<br />

watching a highly choreographed dance<br />

performance, versus a communal religious<br />

prayer (at the steps of mother Ganga, no less).<br />

In the end the cold and humid boat ride at<br />

twilight was the peak of the evening mission.

Poem a Week<br />

Gary Michael Dault<br />

A Glass of Water<br />

When I was young and consolable<br />

and sometimes ill in bed<br />

there was comfort in the clink of ice cubes<br />

grinding, bobbing together in a glass of water.<br />

Now that I am older and not so easily comforted<br />

a glass of water is not some vast Greenland sea<br />

edged and grating with icebergs, a seascape<br />

too pure for microbes,<br />

but merely two gasses in a glass<br />

a volume and a mass.<br />

Still of course a bounded seascape,<br />

but above the meniscus membrane of this<br />

treacherous<br />

ocean’s circular surface there now blows<br />

a typhoon of instability,<br />

with molecules of H20 lurching free<br />

from the mother sea<br />

panting upwards into sublimation,<br />

and aliens from the air<br />

tincturing the wellspring water,<br />

pressing their runny noses against the glass,<br />

looking out at me with the flat nonseeing eyes<br />

specially adapted for all organisms<br />

untroubled by a conscience.<br />

Now only one thing is for certain:<br />

you cannot drink from the same glass of<br />

water twice.<br />

… 談 笑 間 …<br />

Yam Lau<br />

A text message to a friend while standing in front of a Warhol painting<br />

at the Art Institute of Chicago around 2018<br />

“... I think this is one of my favourite paintings in the world. The speed and<br />

the ease... the sudden appearance of the image... the easy delivery...as if the<br />

image is not made, it just “happened”.<br />

A Warhol is a Warhol. It is a brand. But some Warhol is just so good and<br />

so much better than the other Warhol paintings. This one, for example,<br />

is quite small. And I stood in front of it and looked… and looked…It is a<br />

mystery.<br />

What I cannot show you are the bits of thick texture. It may be due to that<br />

fifth, or whatever number pull of the silk screen when the ink is drying and<br />

start to clogg the mesh. The image is embodied with a strange painterly<br />

materiality. It is so beautiful and magical. No struggle, no battle, and no<br />

need to enlist so much doubt to prove anything (Gerhard Richter). It is,<br />

and it is what it is, and it happened in an instant. It is literally electrifying.<br />

I stood in front of it for a long time. Warhol is great but this one is a super<br />

great Warhol. It is THIS unique pull of the screen, off registration and the<br />

size of the work. The iterations before and after would not have worked so<br />

well. Just this one.”
