A Day at the Anthropology Museum

Maple land,

Angel wings littered at the feet,

Diaspora feathers from earth worn people,

Intoned language,

Inflected at odds,

Hearing scorn in laughter, love,

War in celebration, joy,

Uninitiated, listening,

Symbols vocalized,

Raised in greeting,

Raised in anger,

Beaten on drums,

On faces,

Skin stretched,

Tight enough to rip the wings off.
