Desolation won honours in Yeah Write #282!

Here’s the beautiful note that

went with the Editor’s Pick for this piece!

Shailaja was almost more a photojournalist than a writer in her microstory this week. From the title – Desolation – on we are prepared for stark graphic images, and like the title those images can have more than one meaning. She follows through in the story, using paragraph breaks like page turns to separate her images. First we have a snapshot of broken buildings, bullet-pocked concrete. But that’s not all that’s encapsulated in this paragraph: sounds start to filter in. Next she builds on those sounds, presents us with an image of women picking over looted corpses. Does it happen in the same space as the buildings? It might. It might not; the ambiguity lends a timelessness to the image. The final two paragraphs really highlight this sense of senselessness and almost catapult us back to the beginning: we don’t know what war is over. We don’t know who won or lost – and maybe neither does anyone else.
