The Native Drum

Tribe gathers
individuals whirl
in separate

"bills due,
boyfriend's mad,
how long will this take?
back aches."

Small whispers of quiet
in-between breaths
of chili sauce
eyes meet then smiles

Friends and strangers form
circle. Men, women
and children - gather

Drummer in the center
strikes the drum
synchronizes hearts
to beat as one.
