Maughwauwama

Maybe

Just maybe,

you’re hearing me,

seeing things,

perceiving,

incorrectly.

 

Have you ever

stopped

to think?

 

But no,

perception is reality,

so we must be in Wyoming.

  1. I have to ask – the title?

    • Maughwauwama is the native american word that “Wyoming” was based on. Apparently it means “big prairie land” or something like that. But when my college roommate and I heard that, we just pictured a settler and native american talking: “what did you say this here place was called?” “Maughwauwama” “ah, Wyoming! Got it!”
