Wixáritari woman on Cerro de la Bufa, Zacatecas, México
Where, O where, has my little boy gone?
Where, O where, can he be?
I’ve looked for him high, I’ve looked for him low,
I’ve looked for him up in a tree!
The moment I find him, what should I do?
(I fear the search will be long.)
The thing every other mother would do:
Love him and sing him a song.

An artist’s rendering of a street scene after the catastrophic 2010 earthquake in Haiti. The painting hangs in a church in Southern Arizona.
playing in the street
even after the earth shifts—
a boy in blue shoes
Summer sunrise, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
Christmas decorations, northern New Mexico
festooning the old town square—
blind boy claps with glee
