Simon Ortiz – “from Sand Creek”

Bones

are no longer
stark reference.

We don’t study horizons
As necessity
anymore.

Last signs.

One, or two, several soldiers
swiftly
expertly
at her
self her generations

uhh aieee
uh

‘oh susanna don’t
you cry for me’

Stuck them
on their hats to dry.

Their fingers greasy
and slick.
