A Choreographer's Cartography

by Raman Mundair

Roam from Shetland to India via a sexual encounter in Blackpool. Discover the joys of bhangra and the shoormal. Find out about Queen Victoria and her Sikh bodyguard. Or why the waltz is subversive. Go on a poetic joyride, a dance of compassionate anger and sensual sensitivity. Or simply sit back, let the language flow over you and enjoy.


December darkness,
the comfort of bed
creeps closer as hours
contract - folding in sleep,
Snug - the sound of rain
lonely against the pane,
waiting to be let in

South Nesting, Shetland
