The People

in the suburban context
they shop at Kmart or Wal-Mart
ink stains next to turquoise rings
tacky art like greeting cards
no, not horse people
it’s a salmon culture
this is a waterproof basket with the
flying goose design
tall trees went into it with proud roots
our homes are the homes of those
a race here long before
everything was birthed with words
these words were the first words
words from the original mind
