I found a ride to Phoenix
My brother let me jump in
Then he proceeded to lecture me
As I asked him for 20 dollars
The silence of his wife amazed me
Then I knew they both felt I was a bum
Well all I knew was that Jesus would’ve laughed
As they judged me for being broke
The light rail doesn’t go to the Rez
Car parts and money don’t grow on trees
She kept telling me I was Mr. Popular
I laughed until I couldn’t
A snapshot of a time and a place
None cared for.
Hidden in plain sight for all to see
The newest trend the latest sensation
The one that kicked it all
Down the whitewashed street.
The ones who won’t take it anymore
Are the ones who pay the heaviest
BY THE TIME I GET TO PHOENIX Tonight.
At the The Coe House Gallery .
I’m hoping to see you all present.
Food by Barrio Cafe.
I’ll be unveiling new smaller works.
I’ll also be taking photos.
Which can be fun.
Don’t be shy.
Come see the art
APACHE RESISTANCE ART STENCIL Douglas Miles Original 12” x 8” on paper, cut with Exacto Knife. No photoshop/projectors.
I COULDN’T HIDE HER IF I TRIED.
Tried shaking her out of my mind
Like dust from the broom.
It didn’t work because every high cheek,
Full lip, narrow eye and twisted braid
Was loudly etched into my mind
Like recurring dreams
