Clemente's Gravesite



is as plain

as his unpretentiousness.

Weeks before he died,

he asked that it be covered

with a cairn of local rocks

and marked with nothing

but a cross of mesquite

with only his first name

carved across the transverse.

He felt Mother Desert

was sufficient to serve

as a monument.
