i bet you didn’t know
you made me feel
like Ten Horse Woman*
when you followed the song
of my dragonfly
to my teepee,
or that the pounding
of those 40 hooves
birthed the hum of hope
in my heart

nor that the confusion
of female voices
that gathered round
the well of my soul
at morningtide
would grow hushed in awe
as i came near,
a smile playing softly
in my eyes.


i bet you didn’t know
that i didn’t know
what it felt like
to be worth ten horses



*The Tale of Ten Horse Woman
