Winslow

Two men walk down a dusty street 
in Winslow, Arizona.
One places small white crosses 
at the curb and recites names 
while the other bears witness:

"Juan Fernando Lopez”  
“Presente!”
“Maria Anna Ramos”  
“Presente!”
“Jose Angel Fernandez”  
“Presente!”
“Restos mortales”  (Mortal remains)
“Presente!”

This continues until 
that day’s accounting 
of bodies found in the desert
is complete.
