Tongue Becomes Stone
We summon to the ancestral night
who can distinguish darkness
from our shadow soul

Brought face to face
we can-not escape
malicious eyes

Trusting destroyed our
loving faithful voice


Only the dead can be forgiven
 the tongue becomes stone

This is incredible.  How perfect it is.  Describing your Native roots and the strong and bitter feelings of your community.  I love these poems of yours.  I think they balance the love poems -- with a stark contrast.  Clearly, you feel these feelings so deeply -- and express them with such personal truth.  Great writing, India.  Love, David
