there are places in the sun . where we can remember all the parts

that are mexican . all the parts that are pre-american. all the parts

that were placed in slave ships and reside in the wings of our spines

there are places in the sun. where we become the memory of our fathers

we become the waters of our mothers. and watch the blue and red lines

come back to speak to us in tongues before nahuatl or any other two legged

memory tongue. there are places in our singing stone where we can remember

all the parts mexica. all the parts irrelevant. all the parts still waiting for us.
