“Search for My Tongue” was written by the poet Sujata Bhatt, who was born in Gujarat, India, but immigrated to the United States with her family when she was 12. “Search for My Tongue” combines English and Gujarati, Bhatt’s native language, as it explores what it is like to be an immigrant in a new culture, the pressures of assimilation, and the relationship between language and identity. “Search for My Tongue” was first published in 1988, as part of Bhatt’s first collection of poems, Brunizem.
