Marías Mazahuas

Note: This poem was originally written in Mazahua. On her back the smallest child, others before her, yet others following. They decided to discover new worlds closed the windows and the door of the house and the bean patch was left abandoned. The more they were lost in the distance the louder grew their pitiful cries until even the owl went mad. Where are you going, Mazahua mothers? Where are you going, Mazahua girls? Why take your little ones? Why abandon your garden?...
