Her other association was with Nicodemus the slave and the words of that song.
The contraction of "is" slows the reader down to do a double take: "...one's/inadquate;"
If you take the song "This land is your land, this land is my land" and compare the process of the Michael Harper poem that uses the technique of erasure, and add "Standing Rock", one is compelled to ponder about what land IS. The 3rd column repeats 4 lines "Land is land" -- followed by

or a reminder that land belongs to no one much as nations pretend it does.
