Dialectics

Kim Morrissey
From:   Batoche. Regina, Sask.: Coteau Books, 1989.


My dearest—
We have a new problem:
The Indian Agent speaks English and Cree
The Indians speak Blackfoot and French
Our MP refuses to comment

Yesterday
Our petitions to appropriate ministers
Were answered by a shipment of dictionaries
Tomorrow the Indians
Begin to learn Cree.
