Blood Moon

  1. Sometimes I feel
  2. Like a fatherless daughter
  3. A motherless father-
  4. land under this sky
  5. Overlooking blood
  6. Tribe adrift with a
  7. Flood of it, the
  8. Inconsolable, unexplainable
  9. Wreck of moral
  10. Ressentiment, which
  11. Like eyes replaced,
  12. Like the heart re-
  13. placed for politics,
  14. For history, places
  15. Blood came from
  16. What you wouldn’t
  17. Bless then bless now
  18. Isis, repair the
  19. Labyrinth of those
  20. Calls to be violent
  21. Call forth women
  22. To conquer their
  23. Sons-filial-cells
  24. To wreck identity
  25. Replace it with
  26. A new Indian-
  27. Angel-step-moving-
  28. me-up-to-the-sun,
  29. Something older than
  30. Blood—like a blood moon.
