I am reading about the start of the others coming to Canada
after our Native brothers and sisters were already here, and I too,
I too come from one of the others.
Could I wish that I was not?
The ideas they said, the things they did, forcing upon them Jesus Christ.
The more I think about it,
the more dizzy I feel.
Dizzy with confusion about everything we have known.
How we did not live in parallel with the animals,
claimed we were the master of all.
