"Indian Brother"

From the Marias River to the North Pole: A Montana History in Story Poems, by Bonnie Buckley Maldonado

April 1945

He came to us wrapped in Mother's blue sweater,
his crippled sister, Mary Jane,
murdered by a drunk.

as beaver points on a Hudson Bay blanket.

His serious, brown self seemed lost
in the fancy wicker cradle that could never
be a cradleboard.
