qairnitmiut
by Stephen Fowler

greathead, take my tooth to be your tooth
give me your tooth to be my tooth
that I may have a tooth that often eats rich fat
that often eats tongue
a fine tooth
a hard tooth that will not break okvik
sung to knud in 23
pillaging ice floes in his wooden pipe
he smoked the blubber of whales
