Monday's Poem

© Sandra Lynxleg

Saulteaux Sociogram

Their lips. Your
ears. Between my
two aunties
the language round
dances a discombobulated
tongue in cheek. Jingle
guttural consonants. Swirl
pursed vowels. Ease drop
centuries of psychic disequilibrium.
My lips. Their ears. Spin
Saulteaux silent.
Your cacophony wails. My ears
don't exist. Your lips
linguistically profile. This poem
began in Saulteaux. My aunties
lean forward. Look at each other
and laugh.
