The Death Cart

Note; I’ve found a lot of work of mine on email, cd, and floppy discs?!

As I learn how to transfer, it will appear. Rather then spending time scanning.

The Death Cart.  Gallery 110

Carretta de la Muerte

Artist unknown New Mexico 1880-1990


So little is known

though probably a Penitent

Death  was paraded through the streets

to remind


This was an age before

the clash and crash of media

words, then, would not suffice

see the results of not being saved


Hutchinson, Kansas has the

Death Cart by Ben Ortega

That was the Penitente Brotherhood

with the dead  a woman, Dona Sebastiana


Then there is Luis Tapia’s Smithsonian

Horacio Valdez of St. Louis and…

this is Philadelphia

Where we need not reminders of death


of course there is more on Google

Yahoo, other search engines

you can look there for yourself

determine your current status of self, live or dead


When you search yourself

and find the death cart Ikon

maybe this is the time

when time ceases
