Part Three is the third part of an ongoing series of poems I wrote about a dreamscape world that exists parallel to our own. A being enters this world after nuclear apocalypse sends them into a transformative recluse state under ground. They seem to be the only human form in this dreamscape, and have little recollection of their past life. They bond with a fox (otsíhkwes), and the two navigate this world of spirits together. 

Part Three speaks to the narrators rituals around grieving the loss of otsiíhkwes, the medicine of dreams, and blood memory.
