**for beatriz martinez dominguez rios**
you've taken long enough now.
no one here will mind if you cut out.
two more nights and you'll be there already
underneath the texas sun
hardened hands, all the rows and rows.
this small town is warmest now.
all those calls. talking to your husband.
sending all your money home.
you can still feel the hot air blowing.
all the sweat on the band, on the hands
hardened hands. all the lines and lines
culiacan is warmest now.
but you never did break down.
it was just another time in your life.
one more thing that you did for me.
