While walking in the streets of Kolkata, one can experience a mysterious, unexpected balance. In some moments, life in this city is so hard that you start wondering how it is possible to live here, and as soon as you reach this point, beyond your limits, all the hope and energy that you have lost will be returned to you in a unpredictable way—and even more than that: as a kind of gift, a grace. This balance between destruction and creative sources is very important to me. During this period of my life, I have been trying to recognize myself in a body and in a place.
Coffee House poet Saeed Jones wins PEN award
I have been trying to stand firmly on the earth, with both feet, yet I always find an earth that is collapsing, fault lines that are opening, destroying everything in which I have trusted and thought that I had built. When I arrived in Kolkata, one of the first images of India that appeared to me, in the trip from the airport, was a little plastic colored statue of Ganesha, on the dashboard of the taxi.

A kind of complementary—reverse— image of Kali. In Greek and Latin mythology, there were some strong feminine figures who were warriors. But with the Christianity, they had to disappear. The Madonna became the feminine model of a way of being.
If we compare Mary and Kali, we can have an idea of two different cultural and anthropological ways of being. Mary cannot express any anger or violence. The only image of that kind of power is when Mary crushes the snake evil with her foot. But she does this with a rather peaceful expression, almost without realizing what she has done.
