Henrietta “Squaw”

Henrietta is not sure in what language to think in.

Her name used to be all phonics and stars.

Letters are useful, everyone said,

Forget characters.

Forget that “woman” to you means nothing to us.

Forget that we fuck you, uncivilized, hair bouncing, in all of our dreams.

Forget, please.

Play along.
