rewriting landscape.


Donald Wellman

Public arts


At the end of the line, tren ligero,
implicate patronage, Museo Dolores Olmeda Patiño
Personal holdings of baroque and indigenous art
an enabling condition.
Beloved Xoloitzcuintli
and peacocks
Sketches worked into monuments
of emerging national consciousness
Faces and legs and arms
add up
of working parts, transformed
Labor and indigenous rights coalesce
Mandate, unresolved
Beyond the sports stadium,
houses of unpainted concrete blocks
Garages, gas stations, sidewalk food stands
in Noria at the end of the tram line.
