Elk Dreamer (altar of supernaturals)

owning, amassing, collecting
hair, head, ears, antlers
men brag of seeing you, great beauty
and in that sacred moment of awe, upon the first shocking glance
at magnificence
not dropping to their knees
not laying down tobacco
not falling down when the spirit hit them in the head with elk speech
but taking aim and firing.
killing the biggest and the best
of every living thing
