The men in the party don’t know that the white men who come first left a gift Capt. Lewis believe he can cure

with something he call mercury ’til the men start to lose they sight. Them be surprised when a ax we trade

come back to meet us many miles and moons up the M’soura, but even bigger surprises return

after we travels all the way to the ochian an trade lil’ pieces a ribbon an trinkets for a good time’tween young Chinook thighs

Surprises that return to the givers like a rabid bear easing out ova winter cave.
