My secrets are ignored.<br /><br />Here comes the man I love. His coat is wet<br />and his face is falling like the leaves,<br />tobacco stains on his Polish teeth.<br />I could tell jokes about him—one up<br />for the man who brags a lot, laughs<br />a little and hangs his name on the nearest knob.<br />Don't ask me. I know it's only hunger.<br /> Mon, 20 Jan 2014 13:23:00 +0000 James Welch 13715 at http://kufm.org "Dreaming Winter" A Conversation with a Nakoda/Assiniboine Poet http://kufm.org/post/conversation-nakodaassiniboine-poet <p>During this program, Minerva Allen talks with TWQ producer Chérie Newman about her role as a guardian of tribal culture.
