"Senamg makan nasi?" (do you like rice?)
What sound 5 am? Processional. Leading the barong back to the temple. She-Who-Is-Away-From-Home again ponders the turmoil these multi-headed islands are prone to. The breakaways. Is she a breakaway island? She wants another possibility to the kingdom of poetry, the new careerisms. Goes out to be counted. Confronted. There are legions of spies on motorbikes. She has to conceal her Noam Chomsky tapes. Bloddy former and recent battles of East Timor keep the community on pins and needle. The fires of Kalimantan rage without respite.
