    Alexie poems are paintings and that is the largest compliment I can think of...

    I love Sherman Alexie. He has the best wit and is so honest in everything he writes, but I do love his short stories and novels much more than his poems like 'The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fist Fight In Heaven.' He is great!

    This is probably one of the best poets i have read from ever. He has a style that i admire thoroughly. He is very straight forward. I hope to read more of his work in the future.

Good Hair

Hey, Indian boy, why (why!) did you slice off your braids?
Do you grieve their loss? Have you thought twice about your braids?

With that long, black hair, you looked overtly Indian.
If vanity equals vice, then does vice equal braids?

Are you warrior-pretend? Are you horseback-never?
Was your drum-less, drum-less life disguised by your braids?
