The stars were out for the first time in weeks.
Creases had grown like fissures across her weary cheeks.
With eyes sunken in like bombers shot down over the sea,
she climbed out of the passenger door with something hidden in her sleeve.

Two eyes no more watchful than any others present
happened to catch a glimpse of her, lingering, hesitant.

The smell of diesel hung heavily in the air.
A man and girl both left the truck, grease matting their hair.
They shared a knowing look before he turned away
to play the dangerous, dangerous game they play.

The woman stood by the corner of the store.
The two eyes across the parking lot eyed the loose shirt that she wore.
She beckoned to the girl, tracing a finger through the atmosphere.
The night stayed dark, unclear.

It was as La Malinche turned over a nation with a word
that a woman took the life of an unsuspecting girl.
