Like A Lakota Chief

Cameron sits on the

cement bench on

the side of the

Dreamy Draw Trail

like a Lakota Chief

sits alone meditating

before the council


He comes at dark

and smokes


like the chief smokes

a peace pipe to close

the council meeting.

He is a recent

graduate of the

University of Arizona

in mathematics.

He works as an intern

at a computer firm

to expand his field

of expertise before

starting his Ph.D

program at a school

as of yet to be


He sits through the

cold, clear winter

night and watches the

January full moon.

He sits through the

summer night,

looks up and lets

the monsoon rains

wash over his face.

A lone coyote wanders
