ME AND DOG

WITH THE SHARP NOSE OF THAT PRAGMATIC PRAIRIE DOG
WHOSE SHOPPING AROUND ALL THE EMPTY DOWNTOWN MARKETS
WITH ME, THE WILY COYOTE, WHOSE GOT GPS, NATURALLY!
WE DID ARRIVE BY CANOE, FROM WAY DOWN STREAM,
WE WERE NOT SHOT, BY NO SHOOTER!
WE TOLD ANYONE LISTENING, WASH YOUR HANDS, 20 SECONDS OR MORE!
THEM BATS DON’T LIKE US, THEY SHITTING ON US ALL, NOW!
SO, WE GAVE ALL WHO NEEDED MONEY, SOME!
ALL WHO WERE HUNGRY, A BAG OF FOOD!
ME AND DOG, WE AIN’T GOT NO SAFE PLACE, NO MORE!
NOWHERE TO HAVE A WILD AND CLEAN HOME!
SO, ME AND DOG WE HEADING TO THE BUFFET ON LAKE!
AND, WE GOT OUR MASKS ON TOO!! STRONG BUFFALO-DAKOTA

YOU, BARELY DO NOTICE ME, YOU, WHO ARE FOLLOWING BLINDLY, THAT VISIBLE MOIST STREAM ,IN THE SKY, UP THERE, THAT FLOWING RIVER OVERHEAD OF ALL THOSE, WAY DOWN BELOW, FLOATING ABOVE, FLYING OVER THE MASS OF MISTY DUSTY GAS, YOU WILL HARDLY, KNOW IT’S ME, ME, THE FIRST CLOUD, TO THE LAST RAINDROP MAKING LIFE UNDER THE SUN, YOU BARELY DO NOTICE ME, UNTIL, I AM GONE AWAY, ME, I AM GONE! ME, THE FLOATING RIVER!

A Message from the Dark

A very dark shadow follows

nearby,

A quiet someone speaks

out of space

close by,

A quick something moves

through the

air,

never alone

even,

if untouchable!

if unseen!

A star shines for me

far away,

the darkness

utters softly

to me,

“I Love You,

I Love You!”

BUFFALO EYES

THE STARS, GO DARK WITHIN IN THE BUFFALO’S EYES,

THERE’S MANY OF US, YES, BUT, DON’T BELIEVE,

WE’VE BEEN INTRODUCED,

I AM BUFFALO,

THE ONE WITH THE STARS IN MY EYES,

THE ONE WHO CRIES FOR THE PEOPLE TO LIVE,

WHO RUNS HIGH IN THE SKIES!

SEE, LOOK AND YOU WILL SEE

THOSE STARS SHINING BRIGHT

DEEP WITHIN MY BUFFALO EYES,

THE ONE WHO CRIES FOR THE PEOPLE TO LIVE,

WHO RUNS HIGH IN THE SKIES!

STRONG BUFFALO-DAKOTA

COLOR MY WORLD TURQUOISE

COLOR MY WORLD TURQUOISE,
PLEASE GIVE IT GOODNESS ALL AROUND, TO EVERYONE,
EVEN, IF THEY DON’T KNOW, MORE SO, IF THEY DO,
MAY THE BEAUTY SURROUND YOU AT ALL TIMES,
ESPECIALLY, AT THE LAST MOMENT,
BEFORE ONE GOES ON TO THE NEXT WORLD,
MAY YOU SHINE BRIGHT, AND WEAR IT ALL PROUDLY,
MAY THE TURQUOISE BLESS YOU,
WITH A TURQUOISE STONE PATHWAY TO WALK UPON,
AND TURQUOISE FLOWERS TO SURROUND YOU,
LET ALL YOUR PEOPLE BE THERE,
MAY YOU FIND IT RIGHT AWAY,
THIS BEAUTIFUL AND MAGNIFICENT NEW WORLD,
THE COLOR IS TURQUOISE! TATANKA OHITIKA-DAKOTA

The Light

Lost sits alone in the corner, not wanting to be seen, no words, can undo isolations’ dilemna, the light walks in and fills the place full of it’s glowing delight!

The Dude

The dude was just walking down the street, all bull-legged and pidgeoned toed, at the same time quiet, but moving deliberatly, nobody knew he was made of water, pines, and bluejays, didn’t look the part, had little in common with most folks, what he listened to usually was not popular, what he wore is not fashionable, in it’s own right, seems, it made most take a second look and smirk, most then noticed the brown skin, long hair, the dark eyes, that rarely blink, with large hands from years of working, just to survive, with legs that had walked to, way too many places, most people quickly leave the area, after checking on their own valuables.
The dude, he just smiles and finishes his last poem, in his head, he’s not at all pretty, expensive or rare, he just flies off to his favorite tree by the river, because, he knows that he is made of water, pines, and bluejays. And, he is the dude!

IT IS RAINING ON ME

IT IS RAINING ON ME FALLING TEARS RAIN UPON ME FROM ABOVE!
FIERCE WINDS SLAPPING ON ME FROM FAR AWAY PLACES!
I WON’T RUN FROM IT, NO, I WON’T!
I WON’T HIDE FROM IT, I CANNOT HIDE ANYWHERE!
I WILL LET IT DRENCH ME, AS THE SKY AND EARTH JOIN ME,
IN THIS SHOWER!
THE SAD LOVE OF SORROW, BUILDS UP INSIDE OF ME, MAKING MY
TEARS BEGIN TO RAIN ON ME, ALL OVER THE PLACES!
IT IS RAINING ON ME!

Big Buffalo’s Wild Dreaming

There a big buffalo tired and old, falling off into a very deep sleep, dreaming of the lost praire’s appeal, crying for the many brethren, who ran off into the dusty long ago, and, who, now, run around the farms and parks, buffalo remembers the way of before with no fences, roads, towns, cars, cows, oh, it’s all gone on, just a repeating loop, inside his brain, the smells, the grasses, the watering places, and all those brethren, all alone, is a difficult role to hold, yes, one day, they will all return or i shall find them all! Buffalo smiles and falls to sleep to find his wild dream!
