Summary
At the heart of the Southwest are the people who struggle to survive. The old woman of this poem speaks the final truth. In a sense we're all small desert animals and there's always the shadows of the hawk over us. Death is the ultimate truth, no tricks of a tent show, and we all meet it one way or the other, depending on how lucky we are not to get swooped down on from above.--Cover
