Arrowhead

Always keep my eyes alert
for the telltale tip of an
arrowhead.

You can find them around here
sharp enough to draw
blood.

Strange that I know almost
nothing about the people
who first walked this land.

       their myths and songs
       the sound of their words

I’m looking for an arrowhead.
I want to hold one in my hand.
I want to touch the tip of history.
