sold me turquoise & silver

I found a Native American

who sold me turquoise & silver

said his name was Bob

& he looked like he had a face

that could listen

so I told him my people

had lost their path

some long time ago

& now didn’t even pretend

to talk to their God

he hummed a second or two

said: the important thing here son

is what YOU intend to do

& I said I was thinking

maybe getting something to eat

probably a beer or two

he laughed at that

you know what I mean he rumbled

shook my hand

as he looked me in the eye

said: I hope it’s rare

then started laughing some more
