napowrimo – snowpants – 2

for kevin, one of my favourite crees

there’s this kid i used to know
who walked across the rez in knee deep snow

hopping in and out waist high deer tracks
carrying his treaty card so didn’t have to pay tax

as the winter turned to spring
his snow pants were still his king

after the snow was all gone
he began to feel all alone

so, this kid i used to know
wouldn’t take off his snow pants, hell no
he stayed true
even while he grew

his snow pants are now capris
oh the determination of those smarty-pants crees
