A former janitor for Customs and Border Patrol in Arizona collected and photographed the ordinary things left behind by migrants when they were detained or deported.

We walked at Wolfe's Neck this morning in the gray chill. Animal tally:

  • Black and white cow outside the fence, half in the road, calmly chewing on weedy grass. All the other cows safely clustered together inside the fence, far from the road.*
  • Two osprey, calling, soaring, then perching—one in a branch and the other in the nest. Where are the babies? Are they out of the nest already? 
  • Dogs dogs dogs. Foxlike, wolflike, puppetlike.

*We called the farm to report the rogue cow.
