Blue Monday: Tattered Garment

Immigrants crossing illegally into the U.S. from Mexico often abandon clothing in the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California

Someone left a garment,
Left in the sand,
As she fled to safety
In a foreign land.
The garment’s torn and tattered,
And faded by the sun,
Yet bears the haunting beauty
Of someone on the run.
