along the frontera my tongue lives there

my corazon lives there. we are the border talkers

between spanish ingles y the inbetween lenguas

someone bought your frida khalo friday portriat

but they hate your zapata bunny feet abstract painting

maybe you should consider reselling your tongue to

mexican american ghosts to see if there will be a sale

on foreclosed burritos and a handful of mexican lemon pies

they are cheaper when you stop to reconsider the notions

set in stone not by azteca or mayan calendars but by

your abuelas molcajete.
