Hagiography
~ Dawn Karima

I never finished THE LIVES OF THE SAINTS,
But I believed the doctor who promised me motherhood,
Serious as Scripture.
Even when things went wrong,
Every word he said proved right.


I never saw a burning bush,
But I knelt on the floor of a church as I lost triplets, years ago.
Who's counting?
I am, every time we drive by.
I hope God is.


I have not yet seen Heaven,
But I did see a healthy heartbeat on our ultrasound.
I unlatched my sandals.
The exam room was Holy Ground.


I never could explain The Lord's Supper,
Until our toddler broke a Graham Cracker in half,
Redeeming the Time,
Drank deeply from my breast,
And handed a portion to me.




Othering
~ Louise Thundercloud Hills


I see you
mixed blood
You can be blonde haired
blue eyed
and the ancestors will poke their heads out
wave
come out your mouth
be in your stance

I see you mixed blood
You can get all the box braids
dreads
fro's

You want
The ancestors will show from your eyes
your cheekbones
your nose

Or like my brother says

"My hair is confused"


None of us is invisible
regardless of our admixture
someone will know
someone will see
someone will sense
Someone will ask

"So what nation you mixed up with "?
