Red Overtone Skywalker/ Red Solar Serpent - Cosmic Turtle Moon of Presence, Day 24

Orlando White, Dine (Navajo).

Poet Orlando White is from Tólikan, Arizona. He is Diné of the Naaneesht’ézhi Tábaahí and born for the Naakai Diné’e. White earned a BFA from the Institute of American Indian Arts and an MFA from Brown University. He is the author of LETTERRS (2015) and Bone Light (2009), a collection of poems Kazim Ali described as a “careful excavation on language and letters and the physical body.” White’s work has appeared in such journals as Ploughshares, the Kenyon Review, Salt Hill, and elsewhere. The recipient of a residency from the Lannan Foundation, White teaches at Diné College in Tsaile, Arizona, and in the low-residency MFA program in creative writing at the Institute of American Indian Arts.*


by Orlando White

Letters will evade and strive
within the labor of words, under
the weight of ink, of languish.
And each alphabet a stapes,
a lilt of sound: curve murmurs
to O and straight quivers
in L. In that moment form
intones, a letter exists in a book,
the cochlea of thought. An impulse
shudders j, its bent leg, leaps out
from a sentence, as i stridulates
its serif points against paper, a deep
trill-silent chirp.*



Kin 213: Red Overtone Skywalker

I empower in order to explore
Commanding wakefulness
I seal the output of space
With the overtone tone of radiance
I am guided by the power of birth.

The management and control of the emotions has to do with the management and control of the ego.*
