Another windy day in Window Rock.

Howling winds spit

Angry hateful words

Against all humanity

On this day.


More than courage

Shall be required

To run outside

And face anger.


Trash strewn about:

Remnants of poverty,

Complete self loathing

And simple ignorance.


Road kill observed:

Animals die daily

In an effort

Of dodging failure.


My girl sneezes

In another room

It takes moments

For “Bless you.”


Like this town,

I lack class

Day by day

It is survival.


Unemployed and negligent

I am guilty

Of American idiocy

And failed dreams.


Standing in defiance

I pick trash

Against screaming winds

And welcome reality.
