In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Oxum of Chimayo

Oxum of Chimayo is a poet.

her sandy-mouth healing song a flight of birds over a chapel’s wooden cross.

her bracelet-thin arroyos trace the penitents’ pilgrim steps.

her yellow autumn. her winter’s dry chill.

bright candlelight her blessing. small room of her excavated, bottomless heart.
