After Listening to Tiokasin Ghosthorse

Name yourself the Lakota way

see how

streams reflecting sunlight

run in your veins,

stars shine

on your brow.

Go to the forest the Lakota way.

hear roots

whisper wordless

under the the soft-handed canopy

holding you as you 

sleep.

Know this boulder the Lakota way

and you will understandĀ 

something solid

Is not

but glows and glitters

with light

like your bonesĀ 

like boulders,

that by constant motion joined,

speak your name.
