Ghost Dancers by John Mackie

smoke, magic,
trance,
the hypnotic
reiteration
of drums:
more things than in your philosophy
Horatio:
not mazed by the feet
gilded with bells
dowered in dust?
of course then
Kill –
it is
after all
your default response
to the challenges
of learning
and the title deeds
of land

 

The Massacre at Wounded Knee – anniversary today
