Hydro Powerlessness: Children of Sun Supper at Midnite 

Above my Tipi, Crow sits. 

Dark clouds of Congress

Fill with Dept. of Interior shadows,

Killed bills and several

Generations of Spokane Spirits,


Blessed be, Children of the Sun.


I gather Moonbeams for supper,

Mixing enriched water from

Ancient uranium lagoons,

A dash and a sprinkle of

Radioactive, not retroactive

Environmental protection vagrancy


I spoon lard-laden drops of dough

Into heart attacks that swim and

Sizzle into fry bread promises and

Cardiac arrest warrants

I raise my glass jar of

Diabetic dam grand Coulee-aid,


Under the influence of

Historical trauma and

Reservation assisted genocide.

Amidst burning sweet grass, I toast to

Flooded dreams, hydro power,

Unpaid power bills, Pacific Power,

The powerlessness of compensation committees,

Final disconnect notices, generalized electricity and

Municipalized ill legalized Monopoly. 

I drink to my ancestors

Smoke in song. 

I Pray

Salmon someday grows feet and

Climbs up the vast fishy ladders

Crashes over the concrete dams and

Falls the lakes into streams and sea,

Freeing the blood of the river, water,

From concrete blocked arteries.


Shine in spite of Midnite.

Radiate irrigated skies.


Blessed be, Children of the Sun.


Coyote listens, ears dancing

By the light of the moon and

Glow of lagoon

His eyes flicker, fluorescing,

Unnaturally green.


It is time to eat trust, trustee.
