"... carving ashes is a compendium of muscular, lyrical prayers. they're all love letters- to bangalore, to the other young black and brown dudes working the [RPS] line, to the water that connects both, travelled by brilliant kin who have always known how to steer small boats through big water...our ancestors and those to come are happy."
