where did this girl go?

Catahoula Park, 1982

I love this photograph of you. The cropping of Monica's face, your baby you balance on your hip, the way a ray of sunlight finds the folds of your red bandanna, echoing your gaze. Is that a lollipop Pierre's chewing? And at the top of a slide, tiny in the background, some boy about to slide down backward.
