Escape



Some eskimos escaped
from the Arctic Circle.
The world opened up.

For some
it was too much
and the path was
broken
and unrecognizable
and nothing prepared them for the noise
and destruction
and the loss of sustenance
and community;
and the heat
burned
and they didn't make it.

I honor them here.

They still speak
in their god voice
that goes back to
the beginning of known
and unknown
time
out of energy that formed
the Orca
out of creation words first spoken
reenacted daily
as they visualize
New Time.

For the rest
Patti Smith and Laurie Anderson and Joan Jett
spoke to them in tongues
and were their salvation.
And their words went out
into the ears
and poems of the eskimo
and the words meant
don't abandon dreams
don't let dreams abandon you
you have something to say
say them here
say them now.

Though it seemed to be
a long time coming,
in metaphysical terms,
not so much.

Ancient soul
energy is now allowed
to be redefined
and though it may be
unrecognizable
to the ancient shaman
sitting in the steppes of Mongolia

waiting

that old soul
can now be found
at three
sitting on the front step
of a small western house
drinking orange juice
and feeling like an old man.

They are still here
we are still here
I am still here
with a new song.
