new memoir from the Winter 2013 issue: Steve Coffman

24 Jan

from “Perfume River”:

The intermittent cortege of sand-loaded sampans had a cumulative effect on me. Beyond their visual interest they began to take on a certain weight of some transcendent enormity being somewhere built or buried. Perhaps both at the same time. Eventually, we came to a spot of hillside where the lush green of palms and banana trees had been peeled away to reveal the source of sand, a large portion of the hill already gone, several dozen men incessantly shoveling sand onto waiting boats.
