'Crazy Dog Events' Crow Indian
1. Act like a crazy dog. Wear sashes & other fine clothes, carry a rattle, & dance along the roads singing crazy dog songs after everybody else has gone to bed.
2. Talk crosswise: say the opposite of what you mean & make others say the opposite of what they mean in return.
3. Fight like a fool by rushing up to the enemy & offering to be killed. Dig a hole near an enemy, & when the enemy surrounds it, leap out at them & drive them back.
4. Paint yourself white, mount a white horse, cover its eyes & make it jump down a steep & rocky bank, until both of you are crushed.~Jerome Rothenberg
excerpt from 'ODE TO A WATCH IN THE NIGHT'~Pablo Neruda
And that's how it was, that night, shadow and space, earth and time, something that runs and falls and passes.
And that's how all the nights go over the earth, leaving only a vague black odor.
A leaf falls, a drop on the earth muffles its sound, the forest sleeps, the waters,the meadows, the bells, the eyes.
