In winter salt grass
the tamarisk and willow
are again equal

A wall can't deny
smells and sounds of genocide
their screams roam at night

Flash of black white tail
lifting hopes to winter branch
was just a Robin

Lady Liberty
repatriating freedom
how long will we drift?

Comida pura
porque es necessito
a defenderla?

Rio tap water
has estrogen and prozac
life is looking up

White dog with dreadlocks
Barelas 4th Street struttin'
in a pink sweater
