Historical figures that dominate

Historical figures
That dominate my mind
Today
Are
General Custer
And the Battle of the Little Big Horn
And the Romanov family

As I free them
From the confines
Of the containers
In my mind

I see a bayonet
I see
Boys in sailor suits
And young women
In a dark room

I see Red Horses drawings
Of the battlefield

I see an iron ship
And an uprising

I see Sioux and Cheyanne
And hungry Russian peasants

I see a red sunset
With iron feet
Rolling across the hills

I want to listen
To the chatter
Of the Romanov girls
As they wake up
In the morning

I see Red Horses drawing
Of mutilated soldiers

I see a bird of prey
High above the bodies

I see Rasputin
Falling into a vortex

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
