Her poetry:  


Don’t underestimate the skill of blankness.
The beauty of exquisite intent, when multiplied
into a universe, can be a terrible thing, weighted
and pure. Watch how it stills perception into memory,
whole cities at a time, like bullets, like babies’ breath,
the gods of the new century put implacably
in their place, the sun the jewel in its crown.

Where to buy her book: http://www.amazon.com/The-Clarity-Distance-Ayesha-Chatterjee/dp/1897411324/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1331491282&sr=8-1
