Abstract

Esther Belin Gone To the reservation today, left a basket full, carrying a basket carrying the ochre sand residue thin barbs of wind burnt umber willow marring my polished nails. Gone like the reservation today, gone as in the ``gooder days shoulda been better'' than ambidextrous texts elapsing our time linear bullet points and bold print like early morning phlegm tinged burnt umber then gone. Our basket empty again. ii We've been traveling so long on this highway We forget our image in the Route 66 rock and mineral stone We forget our language in the static of radio waves We forget why we travel, the Pueblo feast days are tourist pit stops carnival vendors woven into the millennium manta This highway--so long, has been traveled The rock and minerals become our image The static in our language transmits like a radio signal The usual pit stops are touristy, flooded like arroyos during monsoon season, the Shiprock Fair during election year iii In one breath I try to say all that has been said in the last 500 years, I don't want to go back any further, I don't want to think back any more, I want to
