Samuel  J. Ortiz

 

From Sand Creek

 

At the Salvation Army

 

a clerk

 

caught me

 

 wandering

 

among old spoon and knives,

 

sweaters and shoes.

 

 

 

I couldn’t have stolen anything; my life was stolen already.

 

In protest though, I should have stolen.

 

My life. My life.

 

 

 

She caught me;

 

 Carson1 caught Indians,

 

secured them with his lies.         

 

Bound them with his belief.

 

 

 

After winter,

 

our own lives fled.

 

I reassured her

 

 what she believed.       

 

Bought a sweater.

 

And fled.

 

 

 

I should have stolen.

 

 My life. My life.
