-quenches my blood,
these bones,
in silent homily.

-bathes my heart,
this soul
in pure love.

-streams my eyes,
when facing water cannons,
or warrior fellowship,
or concussion grenades.

-has no interest
in criminal banks,
or corrupt police,
or politicians.

-struggles against
nothing but the moon,
the sun, the stars.

-blesses me in
compassion for
my very human condition.

-tidal waves my
muse in unlimited
support

of
Standing Rock.
