THROUGHOUT THIS TEETER-TOTTER WORLD

In Sisimiut, Greenland, today,

Inhabited for the past 4,500 years,
And now a town of 6,000 selves,
We visited a Lutheran church
Completed in 1775.

Our guide said there are only two houses left in town
With two separate entrances—

One for the conquerors, one for her people.

Isn’t it thus
For all of us?

from Rattle #70, Winter 2020
