Bonedancer


He is a Shaman who dances
to shake out the spirits.
Skirts flying, feet pounding,
he raises the sacred skull
adorned with the spiral symbol
of relationship as an offering.
“This is who we are,”
he sings, and as he sings
the universe shines out from
his belly
surrounded by tongues of fire.
We are dancing,
we listen, we listen.
