NOT JUST A PLATFORM FOR MY DANCE by Marilyn Dumont

this land is not 
just a place to set my house my car my fence 

this land is not
just a plot to bury my dead my seed

this land is 
my tongue my eyes my mouth

this headstrong grass and relenting willow 
these flat-footed fields and applauding leaves 
these frank winds and electric sky lines

are my prayer
they are my medicine


and they become my song

this land is not 
just a platform for my dance
