Mission San José de Tumacácori Church   Leave a comment

Even while I walk this ground
I imagine a time that was different
For brown people whose land was
Taken by people in long robes on horses
Who proselytized the native peoples
Building missions in the harsh desert.

Today, like most colonial missions
The ruins are preserved for tourists
Mostly old people, who walk the grounds
Near the Santa Cruz River
Learning about the Spanish conquest
What was, t
hat is now no longer.
