“Silva is a poet-curandera who “sings the body electric,” transforming suffering into song. She probes the ways that love, justice and forgiveness help heal our individual selves and our communities. I am profoundly grateful for ire’ne’s hard-won wisdom and poetic gifts.”
–Demetria Martinez, author of The Block Captain’s Daughter


Enduring Azucares, a digital chapbook featuring 7 poems from Blood Sugar Canto in English and Spanish is available now from Sibling Rivalry Press. Translations by Julieta Corpus.
