Indigeneity, Language and Authenticity

maadtoen vuelie

They offer us a geological liposuction,
a chance to have our bodies remodeled without our consent

in the name of development.

but this surgery
is lethal
and no magic will attach a severed head to a cold body
bled dry.

*

we sing —
our stolen ribcages cannot contain us any more.

i am the land
torn to pieces —

seven hundred ghosts turned up at your wedding and i laughed,
a fitting gift from a hollow man.
