CHEROKEE PEOPLE...


Cherokee Soul Box [Vol.1] by "OBSIDIAN!!!" c. 2006


there's a freedom that

comes with this you know

there's a freedom that comes

with this wild ride this suicide

gangbang tied blood thrilled

scream-filled night

FIGHT!


there's a freedom that

comes with this you know

there's a freedom that comes

with this red blooded cherokee

HOWL! that coyote tailed

breakway flash that

boulder-dash! native american

clavary CHARGE!

tamahawk scalpel snatch...


HOWL!!!


that custer's last

stand on the jagged cliff

that glisterine powdered fire!

nervously ignited nose

riff of a thunderous

blade white flashing like lightning

step-off-the-cliff!


there's a freedom that

comes with this you know

there's a freedom that

...comes

...with

this...


[Eulogy]:

"...and in "The End"

he became an idiot

and in "The End"

he became a buffoon

and engaged in all kinds

of buffoonery...


he use to enjoy the light

from her dark brown eyes but

now he see the darkness

that hides in inside...


-No!


now he sees the darkness

everywhere...


he use to like to lay

like a pretzel in his mother's

arms at night...

but now at night he sees the

clowns drawing ever so closer

but now at night he sees

the clowns drawing ever

so near..."


-YEAH!!


there's a freedom that

comes with this you know

there's a freedom that comes

with this wild feathered apache

ride this split laughter broken-arrow

shot breakdance raw cow hide

behind the shadows of words

smithed inside the arrows

of poems


verses vesus the pitfalls

of the poetry of his mother's

Bible thunp-

Bible thumping lies! spread

out like dead cherokees

sprawled out sideways along

a ghetto landscape

landslide...

JUMP!!


-HOWL!!


release your DNA

1/3 part african

1/3 part cherokee

1/3 part of the U.S.A.

but-STOP!! because you're still

a nigger so you squeez the

trigger of another 'the pen's mightier

than the sword' ATTACK!!

step back black! before you get

slapped with another felony...


so i stand on this indian

cliff with the spread of the

whole of new york city!

inspite of me...

as a cherokee free

to ride these tamahawk winds

like my red blooded ancestors

who proceeded me...


there's a freedom that comes

with this...

DOWN!! the long drop of

the spiraling cliff

infront of me...

cherokee

free

broken arrow

PALE FACE LAWS!

NO!!

free-dumb-me

feathers fly

sun

burning

landscapes inside of me

horizons

another

cherokee

has escaped!!

newsflash:

"ANOTHER

CHEROKEE

HAS ESCAPED!"

the mute revolution
of a pigment
who fights in
holocaust
just for not
having blue eyes.

by Anita Mendes

"the mute revolution of... pigment" i like those words...it sounds like what i was trying to portray in the poem: "Round Eyed Baby Dreams"...yeah, i felt like howling when i wrote this Cherokee poem...i was under a lot of pressure at the time, and needed a psychic release!...it's always good to hear from you, Anita, & i will be reading more of your poetry...now that i've found a program called "Babel phish"-that allows me to translate it as best as a translation can, without losing the real meanings...
