when they burned the codices. they didn’t realize that the it meant that these songs, these stones, these flor y cantos, these mirrors full of light, these prayers, these memories would be etched inside the flames. when they pillaged and raped tonantzin. they didn’t realize she could pillage the pillagers with a breath of her snake song. and still love them in the same breath. they didn’t realize that with water rights they could never give water the right to flow. as much as they attempt to damn it. as much as they want to privatize the blood of our mother. she will always . always reach the hearts of the children. they didn’t realize that the water is truth. water is life. water is alive. they didn’t think that the memory of the water. the memory of us before us and them would vibrate in everything and anything that had water. the blue blood of my mother is always in me. i will always re-member this song.
