This poem/song/whatever is based on Corey’s time working the graveyard shift at a busy convenience store. All of the events in this piece did indeed occur. Corey Hamilton did all the poetry, recording and everything else on this gem.
I, Corey Hamilton, acknowledge Treaty 6 territory—the ancestral and traditional territory of the Cree, Dene, Blackfoot, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, as well as the Métis. I acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for generations. I am grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. We recognize the land as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.
