Black Elk

black elk come back to save us

thunder shouts proof a proclamation

all the creatures ever shiver in their sleep

resting woke by lightning in the bluest sky

forever now we know what apology sounds like

crazy horse’ scar like beads we see with our fingers

praying our chromosomes are unrelated to the Cavalry

is our apology worthy for man unkind

one piece of dust hidden in shame

filth if you must know the truth

if ever god says sorry to his people

he should make apologies to the natives first
