The Bounty Hunters

Nah he in eh woh ha doh
Ehoi yah ja oh gnaw ni dot

Edo no vo oh komeh eh tista
Nah moghda Veho

Davi idon ha aht ighiv

Hoiv ay ya dnot neuts
Eyo sidon he tista

I feel them out there
They sit under a dark sky
Waiting for coyote or Indian
Or black man

Night holds its fist in their eyes

The prairie now grown darker
Turns its face away….

Dog soldier poem
