"This is the southern drop off
of the great central altiplano,
the northern Guerrero escarpment.
We are indigenous native Mexican
country people, rainy seasonal farmers.
Most families plant corn, beans, and squash
in the wet months of summer.
In the dry months of December through May,
the fields are a dusty desert
parched with thorny bush vegetation.
The natives are adept rock masons
The builder surveys the rocks strewn on the ground,
he picks up the one he sees will fit,
packs it into the place where it will go
and proceeds to select another.
In mortarless construction, the rocks need to be expertly tied together
and balanced; all this, the village stone-worker does in single vision;
never does he pick up a stone, then put it down, look around for another."
