Excerpt

“He cannot stay here!”

I jolted to sitting. Blind darkness.

Muscles tensed, breath stopped. Heart bashing through my chest.

Listening. Ready. …

I filled my lungs to capacity, let the air trickle from them like a small leak from a bicycle tire and patted beside me, feeling for Ishi.

A wall of fabric, warm from my body. No brother. Where was he?

“He has nowhere to go. He has no one.” A man’s voice, clear above the freezing room....We have nothing to hide.”

“We are hiding him, aren’t we? He cannot stay here!”

Excerpt

YOU CANNOT WRITE THESE THINGS DOWN
you cannot write these things down
you cannot write them down
you cannot write them down
says the singer of praises.
the warm draft of summer
the burn of stone on bare feet
the blood of my rivers--
you cannot write this down
you cannot create calligraphies of pain
says the singer of sorrows.
