Carmen Delzell (Opposites)

I hear the voice of an American woman living in Mexico.
She speaks of her attachments to nature in a rural landscape
With 2 burros, 9 dogs, and some chickens.
She is immersed, it seems,
Though she is also uncomfortable and lonely.
She is similar—however opposite—to myself.
Once in a while, she sees a truck drive down her dusty road,
Whereas I live immersed in modern-life’s most unnatural world
Where it’s always hard to see the stars
And cars are always passing me by,
And I am almost always uncomfortable in it.
