I Stand with Standing Rock

‚ÄčLast night

at Four Winds in Denver

I became brother
to warriors
holy women
and all who stand against
the Black Snake
named Dakota Access Pipeline
that seeks to destroy
Mni Wiconi
the Water of Life
as it flows through sacred lands
in the river now known as Missouri
on Turtle Island

(Oh, they say this Black Snake
will never leak its dirty oil
but we know Black Snakes always leak
Remember Exxon Valdez
and Deepwater Horizon!)

I stand with the braves
at Standing Rock
in the land now known as North Dakota
on planet Earth
A’ho.  Amen.
