      Personal Sovereignty

       

      I won�t be your poor cousin.

      I won�t participate

      or thank you

      for your half-eaten sandwich,

      and pat on the head.

      .

      Not that I�ll starve,

      or even go hungry.

      The periphery

      of what you see

      is enough for me...

      .

      To stay free.

       

       

      When I Pray

      When I pray

      and say,

      Mitakuye Oyasin,

      (All my Relatives)

      Am I including you?

      You who are culpable,

      You who hold the land

      Treaty Land.

      .

      You who perpetuate

      And initiate.

      You who personify

      And justify.

      .

      When I pray

      and say,

      Mitakuye Oyasin,

      (All my Relatives)

      Am I including you?

      No.

      I won�t lie about it.

      No.

       

       

       

      Tapestry of a Common Man

       

      Is there hope?

      Of course.

      And hate?

      Of course.

      And all things in between.

      Things not seen.

      Dreams.

      Nightmares

      and desires.

      .

      Prayers and

      Curses.

      Often in equal measure.

      Dispensed liberally

      or not at all.

      .

      Balance lies in between.

      The Red and the Black

      Roads

      intersecting at

      More than one

      juncture.

      More than one puncture,

      Or unction.

      Or junction...

      .

      Interwoven.
