    1. Drave
    2. those poor slaves, Who, whilom, under native, gracious chiefs, Incas and emperors, long time enjoy’d [185] Mild government, with every sweet of life, In blissful climates? See them dragg’d in chains, By proud insulting tyrants, to the mines Which once they call’d their own, and then despised!
    3. With what intense severity of pain Hath the afflicted muse, in Scotia, seen THe miners rack’d, who toil for fatal lead? What cramps, what palsies shake their feeble limbs, [180] Who, on the margin of the rocky Drave, Trace silver’s fluent ore? Yet white men these!

    1. A lot of people, including myself, are fascinated with abandoned locations. We’ve been lucky enough to actually write about a few of them here at LittleThings: we’ve seen abandoned resorts, stadiums, psychiatric hospitals, and even train cars.

      I think they are totally cool.

    1. Knut Lang

      Knut Lang (1896-1964) was a Scandinavian man who settled in the Mackenzie Delta from the 1936-1964. He operated a trading post that serviced fur trappers (mostly muskrat), both Inuit and non-Inuit. He was well liked and known for his generosity, eventually becoming elected to the territorial council of the northwest territories from 1957-1964 (Gwich'in Social & Cultural Institute).

      Knut is recognized as suggesting the name Inuvik for the town on the eastern edge of the delta. Inuvik later became administrative center of the region (Gwich'in Social & Cultural Institute) . In the 1950's and 1960's the Canadian government began to entertain the idea of indigenous government (Assembly.gov.nt.ca) . Knut saw the most direct path towards self governance of the northwest territory lay by dividing the northwest territory into an Inuit dominated eastern Arctic and western Arctic comprised of Inuvialuit, Métis, and Dene. This culminated in the creation of the nunavut territory in 1999 (Assembly.gov.nt.ca).

    1. Drained late last century by declining tax revenue and selective civic neglect, Oakland boasts a constellation of seemingly derelict warehouses, storefronts, and churches. Within many of their shabby exteriors, however, are places of creative invention and possibility. These homes and venues—known by cryptic names rarely recorded in the press—cradle scenes that slip between categories; they’re where as-yet-unnamed subcultures gestate. For non-conforming bodies harassed and abused at other clubs, they’re sanctuaries.

    1. the forsythia bush

      Another thing in a certain place in the neighborhood where she lived. Now I think the poem's first 2 1/2 lines were purposely provocative. They keep you guessing, and make you keep reading.

    2. under the back porch

      Oh. I guess she's listing things and places in her life.
