A Birthday Party with a Cactus

Mommy,
I am eager to know this:

has my brother Emiliano
told you if he’s coming for
his tenth birthday party that
I have made for him, because
he promised to
put me in a story
he’s writing for me

No, he’s not coming anymore.

Where is he? I’m sorry if I
broke his toy.
I didn’t mean to.
I made a gift for him.

He got lost in the desert

Where is he now?

He’s in Texas

I’m sorry if I broke his toy.
Can we find him.
I have a gift for him.

Where is he?

His bones are in the desert

Can we go there?
I have a gift for him.

No, precious little one.
I have a job in the factory,
I know a safe bus, and
you will like uncle Magnífico

I have a story for Emiliano.
Can we go to Texas so
I can tell him a joke, and
we can laugh?

Did I forget to tell you …
His bones are in the desert.
