Black Friday Revisited

of things Amish and Trappist

by John Shumaker

The fierceness of Liberated Sound
can be heard in the Silence
of the Abbey
and in the clop clop clop
of the Buggy
down gravel Road GONE
Galactic
Synaptic Universe
Sings In
Rhyme of Chimes
of Other Voices
Other Rooms
Other Times
Ancient Mariner
of Inland Sea
in Driftless
Inyan Sea
of Sacred Stone Elders
of Upper Mississippi
Madhyamikan
Mosk Wah Wak Wah
Milky Way
Middle Passage
of Ancient~Future
Seventh Generation
Ecozoic
In the Hear
NOW
Aeternal
Humming Bee
Byrd
of The WAY
Wyrd
Wynd Chimes
Singing in the Breeze
Let it Be
If there is to be a TRUE Thanks Giving
instead of white racist
celebration
of genocide
colonialism
EMPIRE
vampires
(don’t have to go to movies to see em just look in the mirror)
in Preparation
for BLACK Friday
shop til ya drop
shitloads
at the counter on yer maxxxed out credit card
for techno gadgets ya don’t need
we must ask ourself
how far are we off
in our REAL
daily actions
and transactions
and transgressions
from TRULY following the Black Earth
of Our Ancestors
Our Elders
and the Seventh Generation yet to Come
this means we must make Restitution
Pay Reparations
make Restoration
in order to TRULY
Follow the Black Earth
instead of falsely following BLACK Friday
to BEGIN
our WAY
Back to the Path
The GOOD Red Road of Life
The Sweet Medicine
of a TRUE
Thanks Giving
Where we ALL
Sit Down
TOGETHER
in Peace
on the Commons
in Harmony
in Unity
in Community
In Situ
In Spiritu
Happy ThanksGiving
AHO!
