The White Kid at the Native American Camp

By Ron Riekki

explains indigeneity to the indigenous.

This is at the bonfire where he starts to tell a ghost story

not realizing that there are ancestors next to all of us

listening

and to create fear of the woods

is to create fear of sanity

and the boy talks on and on

as we sit silently

waiting

to see if he will listen

to the trees

that speak

when you are wise enough to be still.
