lyrics

Today I stepped in dog shit right outside my door. Ain't no mistakes. Domingo wants me to go with him to catch the midnight bus to Guatemala City but I have to teach in the morning. Stars in the sky went on and on in their bright course. The bard made bold to murmur some tiny sound and it had started.

The road it carves an open wound into the earth revealing its true colors-- bone white, blood red. On my right side the bubbling song of a small child whose voice has yet to be subdued. She stares up without shame. Her eyes are bright and cast wide in wonder.

And on my left a woman who pays me no mind, ancient and grey, chewing her bread silently. She only stares because she cannot see.
