Deluxe Buffalo Burgers

by Robin van Tine

National Bison Range, Montana.
The herd passes feet from me.
Big bulls snorting, blue bull tongues lolling.
Huge balls swaying.
Cows loving calves.
Bulls protecting herd.
Great power and majesty.
Facing moving herd armed with camera (spear?).

Tacky roadside tourist trinket shop.
Portalet labeled "Emergency Room".
High tension power lines buzz overhead.
Eroded hillside.

"Get Your Buffalo Burgers Here".

I eat a Deluxe Buffalo Burger -- in a sacred way,
thanking the Buffalo People.

The family nearby talks of Disneyland.
