The character journal for Ali Davis.

21 years old and freshly graduate from the University of Texas at Austin, with a double major in Spanish and History. At graduation, she was set up to enter a graduate school program and work in a Spanish immersion day care in Tempe, Arizona, but something is calling her toward a life she'd been taken out of, to a woman who gave her away, and to a life that is nothing like what she'd ever planned for.

Nothing here to fear
I’m just sitting around
being foolish when there
is work to be done
Just a hang-up call
and the quiet breathing
of our Persian
we call Cajun on a Wednesday

so we go from year to year
with secrets we’ve been
keeping
Though you say you’re
not a Templar man

Seems as if we’re
circling for very
different reasons
But one day the Eagle
has to land

Out past the fountain
a left by the station
I start the day
in the usual way
Then think
– well why not —
and stop for a coffee
then begin to recall
things that you say

No one’s at the door
You suggest a ghost
perhaps a phantom
I agree with this in part
Something is with us
I can’t put my
finger on –
is Thumbalina size 10
on a Wednesday —

so we go from year to year
with secrets we’ve been
keeping
Though you say you’re
not a Templar man

Seems as if we’re
circling for very
different reasons
But one day the Eagle
has to land

Out past the fountain
a left by the station
I start the day
in the usual way
Then think — well why not —
and stop for a coffee
then begin to recall
things that you say
Pluck up the courage
and snap it’s gone again
I start humming “When Doves
Cry”

Can someone help me
I think that I’m
Lost here
Lost in a place
called
America
