    dumb as an ox, unable to love,
    while your women sob and offer the visitors tea?
    SOLITAIRE
    John Newlove
    From: Apology for Absence: Selected Poems 1962-1992. Erin, Ontario: Porcupine's Quill, 1993. p.94.
    Then he ran away,
    the forest going by him
    like a motion picture
    and the road slid
    beneath his feet
    until he stumbled in a ditch
    beside a small meadow,
    hardly a lawn,
    with stiff green grass
    tough as barb wire,
    around an abandoned
    plank shack inhabited
    by rats, near a shallow
    rocky river in the north
    of nowhere, and stayed there
    with nightmare
    and pack rats and water
    and wet chocolate bars and cigarettes
    until an engine came
    and took him back again.

    John Newlove
    From: Apology for Absence: Selected Poems 1962-1992. Erin, Ontario: Porcupine's Quill, 1993. p.98.
    When you die and your weathery corpse
    lies on the chipped kitchen table,
    the wind blowing the wood of your house
    painted in shades of blue, farmer
    out from Russia as the century turned,
    died, and lay at the feet of the wars,
    who will ever be able to say for you
    what you thought at the sight of the Czar's horsemen
    riding with whips among you, the sight
    of the rifles burning on bonfires,
    the long sea-voyage, strange customs endured,
    officials changing your name
    into the strange script that covered the stores,
    the polite brown men who spoke no language
    you understood and helped you
    free your team from Saskatchewan winter mud,
    who will be able to say for you
    just what you thought as the villages marched
    naked to Eden and the English
    went to war and came back again
    with their funny ways, proud
    to speak of killing each other, you, whose mind
    refused to slaughter, refused the blood,
    you who will lie in your house, stiff as winter,
    dumb as an ox, unable to love,
    while your women sob and offer the visitors tea?

    Backgrounder
    I Lost My Talk
    I lost my talk
    The talk you took away.
    When I was a little girl
    At Shubenacadie school.
    You snatched it away:
    I speak like you
    I think like you
    I create like you
    The scrambled ballad, about my word.
    Two ways I talk
    Both ways I say,
    Your way is more powerful.
    So gently I offer my hand and ask,
    Let me find my talk
    So I can teach you about me.

    Prompt: Shamed into submission
    I wrote this to depict how the white government managed to shame and degrade the aboriginal people through their use of Residential Schools. Anybody unaware of these schools and what happened should take the time to become educated on the matter. Perhaps through education, understanding will form. I worked in an aboriginal agency and worked very closely with residential school survivors. Their stories were shocking and disheartening. © 2 years ago, TiffanyClouthier
