Sherman Alexie
“When my female friends are left
By horrid spouses and lovers,
I commiserate. I send gifts-
Powwow songs and poems- and wonder

Why my gorgeous friends cannot find
Someone who knows them as I do.
Is the whole world dead and blind?
I tell my friends, “I’d marry you

Tomorrow.” I think I’m engaged
To thirty-six women, my harem:
Platonic, bookish, and enraged.
I love them! But it would scare them-

No, of course, they already know
That I can be just one more boy,
A toy warrior who explodes
Into silence and warpaths with joy.”
Sherman Alexie

“If one reads enough books one has a fighting chance. Or better, one's chances of survival increase with each book one reads.”
