super blue blood moon

they’re calling it in whiteness
and i have to search
the internet to
seek anishinaabe names
spirit moon
i think now
because bear moon seems
too early but
what do i know

i know colten’s name
the trial starting now
my heart in saskatchewan
my heart here
about to teach billy-ray
to walk into a classroom
and say colten’s name
barbara’s name
last week
john t. williams’
name

i dreamt of bleeding
all night
dreams of blood
