Makes me wonder how nomads make it? They abuse and take off. No holds bar to sentimentality or reason because this does not stay factual to them. They keep on relocating- must they be finding something they subconsciously know can never be theirs? The persistence results to instability and desire for what is not present. It seems as if we people, from all cultures relish the idea of wanting the impossible. The myth that lies between nomads comes real today because people endlessly desire and at the end of it all, they lose all of the little they ever had. Do people want anything they are not ?
Unconventional approach is what the writer used in this poem and the directive phrases and words comprise a tone of demand that yields the inner questioning he has for himself. There is a constant mention of the horse culture. The relation of each of the characters presiding in the plot are brought about a commonality and this would be the horse culture. Inconsistent, unstable and restless – qualities of the people he is referring to. This I believe are the same people I deal with each and everyday. Everybody is a half-breed struggling to learn about their horse culture – One of the last lines in the poem that struck me the most and led me to my thesis statement. The struggle and competition is never ending because people want more and more when there is not much to consume aside from each other. This American Indian heritage symbolizes the globalization of all humanities that have converged to meet the demands of disorienting racial discrimination. People are opening their minds all across the globe to get the best of everything – since standards are rising, they must keep up. Their own “ghosts” – at least they ones they named for themselves are rapidly approaching and they must escape.
