The Comanches tell the story
of She-Who-Is-Alone, the girl who
sacrificed her warrior doll, ended the famine,
After the drought of Mom’s cancer finally
ended with her March death, we got better
bluebonnets than anyone could remember.
Even without her, I am not alone.
Everywhere I see a bluebonnet
— in a ditch, in an
emtpy field, in an alley —
I know that she still dearly loves her people.
