b'Interestingly, the poem Diamonds Are Forever reverses the outside-in perspective of Diamonds in the Sun. The speaker wonders:Or was it the diamondedWire fencing that I looked throughTo the outside world fromThe Resettlement Camp This reversal suggests that the fracturing of lives within the camps via incarcer-ation could shape the way that former incarcerees would see the world beyond camp in terms of space and timei.e., these diamonds would remain with them forever.Makuuchi sometimes described more tender memories of camp also with diamond imagery. For instance, in Black Diamonds his speaker recalls coal picken with Grandma T. The speaker and his grandmotheralways too coldwould search like gleaners for errant pieces of coal left over from the main pile. The print Rooting, which appears right before this poem in the typescript, captures this scene: An old hunched woman and a child/ Rooting the ground (fig. 48).Valuable as those black diamonds were, we do not see them depicted here. Barracks sit at the top of the image, their long shadows acting ironically like spotlights directing our attention to the human figures. Many of Makuuchis prints and poems protest the notion of America as a nation founded to establish Justice, as the US Constitution states. What just nation would incarcerate people in horse stalls? What just nation would create conditions in which its most vulnerableold women and young childrenwould have to pick up stray coal to stave off the cold?Other poems also recall fonder memories of camp, though traces of trauma suffuse even these. For instance, No Fear of Freedoms Jump is a concreteFIGURE \x06 Rooting CHECKLIST #36poem that visually mimics a watchtower and verbally describes children jump-ing from the tenth rung of a ladder for fun. Of course the ladder is attached to the machine gun / watchtower. Hence, the threat of violence hovered over evento the lush atmosphere of Blue Lakes Country Club. The extra turn of the screw these relatively pleasant memories. The poem H O Shock Treatment featurescomes from the fact that the speaker associates this experience with a lost 2a missionary-sponsored trip for us kids to the / Blue Lakes Country Club inchildhood. In a post-postscript to this poem, Makuuchi explains that events like the Snake River Canyon of clear blue lakes and streams. But the tranquil scenethis caused his brain damagea splitzoidal / Childhood disorder. Referring does not last.
