The Statue In Nogales - Poem by Barbara Field

Shaped in stone are formed a mother and child.
A braided woman whose son reaches up.
A bank, Ban Oro is near a checkerboard storefront.
In Nogales is a hillside, so I divined that green
Should be thrown on the canvas as trees.
Yellow in the upper left hand side of the canvas
Is like corn-on-the cob at a picnic.
The words BA are scrawled on the statue.
A word with hidden meaning.
The structure of the sculpture a humble tribute to holiness.
Shouldering the burden of the arts.
