Balloon Funeral
Man spotted getting out of his car to tie a Get Well Soon balloon around the front paw of a dead raccoon. Witnesses speculate the man, mid-40s, white, was responsible for the raccoon’s untimely demise earlier that afternoon. Wracked with guilt, unsure of the moral stain left on his tires when he crushed a small mammal in his path, the man returned to the scene of disaster to extend his well wishes and express his remorse through a plastic, rainbow, loud, GET WELL SOON balloon, before taking a picture and re-entering his car. Witnesses say: “Sucks to be the raccoon. But you've got to admit, the balloon is pretty funny.”
In Nowheretown, Nowhereland, people learn to find news in the dirt by highways, in the stretch of nothing between are we there yet and when can we leave. The photo in today’s paper is magnificent: a body on display, not at all embarrassed to be dead. No mortician taught this corpse how to be polite, how to close its eyes and arrange its limbs to a

Ritual As Resistance
Thanksgiving week begins
with the Dakota pipeline oil spill--
the unsurprising backfire
of a white man's pipedream
for a land he thought was
his.
This is how we thank
our native ancestors
for centuries of free rent;
though satellites won't show them,
tear tracks scar the plains
we marched them through,
chanting "love thy neighbor"
in their exile.
It is thanks to this
that I sometimes feel strange
ending calls at work
with "happy Thanksgiving,"
because my white ancestors took
advantage
of my native ancestors
and their giving nature,
thieving land and beast and body and
dignity.
This story is timeless.
We keep repeating
these cycles of oppression
with Blacks
and Muslims
and Latinos
and queers
and poor people
and disabled people
and anyone we feel is
other.
I have created
a new tradition
to redefine Thanksgiving.
I will reconcile
my fractured bloodline,
made possible by stubborn love,
and honor diversity
with multiculturalism.
Tomorrow morning,
the Yixing pot
will overflow with Earl Grey;
