Abstract

Brandon Som Up from Sinaloa, 1917, her mother came bird breasts to her breasts, bra-pinioned wings, smuggling swaddled-tight cockatoos silenced with coos & seed. Rosario, the entrepreneur, renter of tar-roofs to gold-toothed cattlemen, vendor of raspadas bright as rosary beads, stood over pit-fire ladling to sod farmers tripe & hominy. Went by Chayo. Once saw her, years later, shake out her dress & molt. Summers--ran a hose for the swamp cooler. Cicada song singer. Heavy metal John the Baptist. Spigot-spitter so sheets musted. Climbed to it on a painter's ladder tending the honeycombed excelsior (once a green grass in Easter baskets). Inside its panels with ratchet clicks, spoke to it curses, chingados. It seined from skies lacewings & hornets. brandon som
