Rain (Nyesha)

by Melvonna BALLENGER


John Coltrane’s song After the Rain accompanies the day of a women who meets an unusual activist as she makes her way to her humdrum job. Mixed with this haunting and persistent jazz, the protagonist’s voice-over intermittently erupts out of the rain that rhythms her life. Here, the rain is both the cycle of time and the element that makes encounters and solidarity possible. While naivety is indeed the tone that first invites us, this is only to enable the power of a political awakening explode, like an opening up to reality. MM
