Oh to be in Austin…

February 3, 2014

 Oh to be in Austin chained

right here right now

to compañeros fighting

the separation of families

baby from mother, father

 

sister brother, the cilantro

growing in the yard

behind the house where sheets

used to hang in the wind

small flowering agave

 

and the taste of bright green

nopales, with tomato and oil,

the smell of daily work

done with love and esmero

this land is our land

 

as it was before

worlds everlasting

amen

oh to be in Austin

San Francisco Arizona

 

embracing

hermanos

y

hermanas

now!
