This Land

for A.

A girl at work wears trenzas
old school Mexican style

of what we have gained

and what we have lost
amid volcanoes we once roamed

to the plains of Texas and beyond
we have gathered

built houses
roads and bridges

built components
which crawl along on Mars

this land is our land
then and now
