Medicine Dream

Medicine Dream

I saw the buffalo-man
and the universe delighted

dreams set stars on my heart,
turning them to stone
that I might resonate with a star-less night

a mighty seeker came down
choosing this body, with its many desires
and misery

wanting, again, to experience
a whale’s flight through water
a bear within her mother’s womb

the records in her bones
