Abstract

from C É L E S T I N E H I T I U R A V A I T E Breadfruit and Frangipani M U S S E L S It's twenty past one in the morning and Materena is sitting at the kitchen table. She can't sleep. At six o'clock she's going to get the bread at the bakery and then she's going to make the coffee. Materena yawns. She's tired, but she can't sleep and there's no point lying in bed with the eyes open. She could go scrub the bathroom for an hour only she's too tired to scrub but not tired enough to sleep a deep sleep--the kind of sleep when you think of nothing. Materena sighs a long, heavy sigh. She's worried. Today at eleven o'clock, she's going to court, and God knows what can happen to you when you go to court. Eh, you can go to prison. Many of her cousins have been to court and proceeded straight into the gendarme's van. Direction: Nu`utania Prison. Her cousin Mori, for instance. He borrowed a canoe, and the owner of the canoe sued him, and Mori spent two days in prison.
