In Advance of a Broken Treaty

In Advance of a Broken Treaty

lawn care tools are safer
to put your name to than paper
leases, licenses, checks and letters
capture fragments of the soul
the way the old ones thought
of medium format photography
take any cave painting, they knew it then
sage smoke will insure a real estate deal
house hunting is a common replacement
for subsistence cultures in this millennium
at gatherings interviews replace dance
“what do you do for a living?”
and still the good dancer anticipates
“did you come alone?”
