#ode to #barasinghadeer #goldendeer #swampdeer deer with the most majestic antlers extinct in Bengal region due to kings hunts Rooting into acknowledging empire in me so I don't appropriate indigenous animism #firstpass on the land of the Pipl peoples #lagodecoatepeque Music by @tapewallah #mappingvoicetosarangi Documentation by @zxipex Poem Flash of white under tail Sprung legs golden and bounding Mesmerizing A wonder of this world I am the barasingha deer All manner of kings chase The lust for empire Shining in your eyes So I might remain A bright star What would it take my love For you not to covet To relax those eyes enough To be held Song Leaping for millennia When might I stop running When might I stop running Recognize the love in you Recognize the love in you When might I stop running Leaping for millennia Running to the love in you #unevengrounds #fauxkathak
