Fighter planes carrying American
cigarettes, and sugar in its
diabetic variations: penny candy,
Wonder Bread, and cases of generic
beer. Convoys of trucks bringing fire
water, hundred proof. Antlers, missiles,
clusters of wire, crosses, and rope.
Spurs, skulls, crossbones, and the white
fox of death, stuffed with ripped twenty
dollar bills marked counterfeit. A frayed
rayon tent. War paint, just in case.
Bison leather, horsehair,
a blue tarp, an eagle feather.
A handbook on exile, every page
burned out.
