this

this us. this breath.

 

this tear.                    this laughing. exhaustion.

exhaling.                                           in the memory.

 

that we have already                   built. and dreamt our home.

 

you remember.                              all the hands. and all the muds.

 

all the naked moments.                                          dancing in our house.

all those tha have come                                and re-planted. their dreams.

 

their lands. their seedlings.                       their under. and above ground.

 

green. adobe. tree.                                                             houses.

re-member when you helped                                          that mother see

 

the womb of her universe.                                            that child. you helped

her. bring. to tonantzin.                                            and we placed into the warmth

 

of tonatiuh                                                                     do you remember?
