The Story


In Africa
they call
the storyteller
the Griot

Before TV
and handhelds
the people
actually
talked
to one another
they learned from each other
by looking into the soul
not just the screen

The sacred path
connecting
earth and sky
has been
bombed
fracked
droned
surveilled
monetized
and heavily
policed

We are afraid
of nature now
ticks
snakes
spiders
roaches
wolves,
the weather,
all seen
as the enemy
in the war
against
our
mother

Heal
the sacred
hoop...
our only path
to survival
and spiritual
connection
