Contents: Secrets in the sand : the young women of Juarez / Celeste Kostopulos-Cooperman --
No plants or rocks --
All we know about them --
Orphanhood --
And the night was a precipice --
Among the clouds --
With sorrowful hearts --
Always at the edge --
Suddenly the city --
She crossed borders --
Sometimes --
She stands on tiptoe --
Nothing remains --
I will tell you about them --
I approach my nocturnal garden --
I don't know who I will find --
It is that feeling --
Only death --
I have wandered the countryside --
Borders --
Memory is the only witness --
Sometimes I imagine them --
That night --
Dare --
They continue growing --
Before death justice --
Rain --
Wonder --
News reports --
She crosses borders --
It was this living with death --
Questions in the shadows --
November 1 --
Death rattles --
The Earth --
Sorrow --
Suddenly --
Pain --
She ebbs and flows --
You return light of provisions --
And the sea --
The learning was in the loving --
Sand --
Learning --
Silence --
Poppies --
Only memory --
Perhaps we should not have --
Silence --
And her dream --
I had no other option --
She chooses --
In the summer --
Long and deep is the desert night --
In Ciudad Juarez festive lights --
The young girl of Ciudad Juarez --
Poem regarding desert water / Guadalupe Morfin --
Land of ashes / Guadalupe Morfin.
