Detail from a wall of mosaics, Ajo, Arizona.
Cactus Woman has nothing to lose
By walking for weeks without wearing shoes.
She’s toughened her feet on thorns and stones,
And carries the wilderness in her bones.
Her eyes are afire, her heart’s ablaze;
She loves the desert’s unsociable ways.
Cactus Woman is someone, they say,
Who’ll walk in the wilderness, come what may.

A desert scene near Ajo, Arizona.
Evening descends on mountains near Ajo, Arizona.
Crow on the mountain,
must you shatter twilight’s peace
with your wagging tongue?
