Oh yes! How no one will ever understand us, and when we're gone, if our poetry still filters about, it will be hacked to be interpreted however English teachers see fit (sort of bitter about this one, I had a teacher years ago preach that "Moby Dick" was really a story representing Christianity and told us all the religious symbols that were in the book...she was warped)

Working two jobs is not fun. I remember for about six months, I worked three jobs at the same time and worked the seven days a week, even during the holidays such as July 4 and Labor Day. 120 hours a week takes a lot from a person's soul; but, isn't it funny how we still keep churning the poetry?

When I read your note on the Indian name, I envisioned an eagle with white water rapids wings. An eagle drawn into the earth with the rivers its wings.
