Essay: Close to the End: in District Lines 4

Those she loves are anointed in butter. Her daughter stocks the top shelf of the refrigerator door with slabs of Irish Kerrygold. Before we moved in together, my now husband spent a week with her between rental apartments. The first morning he came down to a big greasy breakfast, “Oh, you don’t have to make me breakfast,” he said to her. She said, “It’s not for you darling, it’s for my poodle."

    1. Was that the Plume issue? Thank you for reading. Re: Hindi - only the two translations of Vinod Shukla by Mehrotra in this edition of Plume. Hope to bring in more soon.
