Oh to be in Austin…

 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


oh to be in Austin

San Francisco Arizona
