Sundown published in Voices de la Luna

Voices de la Luna has published “Sundown” in the February 2021 issue. It’s not accessible through their Website. I’ve included the text below.

 for Javier Zamora

I read where you received
a soccer scholarship
to Katherine Branson.
It was a girls’ school
in my day. My father
liked their thrift shop.

Now I live in another state.
I know people who attend a school
they cannot afford on scholarship.
They are welcome
until the game ends,
until the sun goes down.

I want so much to believe
my home state
has no sundown towns.
