After sepia photographs
Hila Ratzabi

Teepees puncture the lake, hanging upside down
dropped from the sky

The eagle-catcher has nothing in his hand
A girl on a horse doesnít know the word horse

An eagle on the medicine-manís head:
his second soul

Pointing arrows at the sky,
the tribe reprimands God

From the rocks a man leaps into
the water to become the water

Jagged lines drawn in stone:
a record of mountains

The mouths of empty baskets gape at the sun
Humans praying: mouths shut
