Stars by Tupak Huehuecoyotl

Works with fire,
stars of forthcoming, NOW becoming…..

stars

There were stars
Before the sky was
Turned black
By smoking war guns
Of alien armies
Who came to put flame
To the land
Searing scars of colonization,
Genocide, racism
And greed.

The echoes still roar.

Hollow eyed sockets
Of false reality
Still see those rockets.
Still stare Into the gory red glare
Of scorched earth
Burnt bare
Burned to a stump In corporate orange Kool-Aid
Trumped up
Version of white man’s burden
Claiming the
Throne of empire
Gaming the land lust desire
Marketing the electorate
Commodifying the constituencies
Of White supremacy and
Modern day Manifest Destiny
Against whom they stood.
They stood in resistance,
They stood in rebellion,

They stand in regeneration:
They,
Who are we
Indigenous Peoples
Understood.

The stars
Will return
In the sky.
