Trajectory of Po-To-Lo (Sirius B) on a Dogon Night

Trajectory of Po-To-Lo[1] on a Dogon Night 


We come from the

Planet of the red dog

I heard Credo Mutwa say

Even as the Dogon echoes hit my ears

We take our beaded paths

Dancing our way

To trace Po-To-Lo

Floating in infinite space

Riding on invisible boomerangs

We plot our return to the stars

The glittering stars

Of our birth!
