Words Are Reassembly

If words are reassembly
of skeleton,
which white bones
do I pull lengua from?
I ask myself
I ask my father
my grandmother

no one can remember where –

plummeted branches
from oldest Ahuehuete at dusk
as red fingers blot out
a tongue
generations forgotten –

I, thin green strip off –
fallen but
lifts then,
to seep into the red
just barely,

Spell Against Ghosts

My father once told me,
"Corn is a spell for the dead,"
letting the magic
slip into object

which surrounds
my youth, Indiana-grown.
I begin to hide red kernels
in my pockets,

finger them when
I feel black rush,
chant over and

give corn to spirits
as they float away
to make sure their
life continues, happily.
