Inuits say the sun’s position has moved
and tongue drifts changed from north wind
to east wind. That is the real news.
This reminds me of the Luiseno Legend
“Before This Land” about when
“darkness and storms descended”
[ . . . .] and “Uu-yot led his people to higher ground
and all were saved”
or talking to a 2000-year-old insect-and-
just before sunset near Crescent City
about her view of blue planet homo sapiens
or an old timer who said
“Maybe there is a spaceship you navigate
with an electric guitar.
In the 60s we made songs like that.”
