The Language of Endangerment
By Victoria Lena Manyarrows

the language of endangerment
means language that endangers
language that defends
means language that stretches boundaries
& opens new doors.

the language of endangerment
are words from people under attack
a world under attack
the earth, trees & sky endangered
by a selfish & money-driven culture …

we are the people who speak the words & language
of endangerment
we speak words that endanger lies …
our hearts are open
our spirits are free
we speak
we speak
we listen & learn …
the language of endangerment pounds in our ears
courses thru our blood
threatens us no more.
