The Truth Is Blue
The Truth Is Blue

I was a baby
Brand new
Goddess
Bright light
Couldn’t see her face

She touched my lips

Blue marble in my mouth

Lifted my chin

I swallowed it
I blinked into focus
I blinked into blue
I finally understood

She was me / I was her

I saw her mouth move

I heard my voice

“Wake Up”
We spoke in unison

 

 

 

Manos
Manos

I am by the tree
Swinging on the anchor
Papa is finally home
I touched his face
“No entiendo, ya no vives aqui’

He laughs
Kiss on the cheek
In the corner a man
Not human
No face
Wears only a gold watch
He taps it three times
Papa smiles
I see the sadness inside
Papa and La Muerte stand up

They walk through the threshold

I run after
Papa se fue 

 

 

 

Seis
Seis

Con mi familia
Cross into Mexico

Destruction
Apocalypse
Giant screen in the sky
Papa spoke
Hemos perdido la humanidad

They all turn to me
Fear in their eyes
Fingers point to my feet
A snake cut into six pieces

Writhing
I tried to hide my shame 

 

 

 

Luz
Luz

My eyes are closed
I am blinded by the light

Floating orb
Heat on my face
Absorbs me
I am afraid
“Where do you come from?”
I ask
“Are you of God?”
Silence
“If you are not, leave in peace”

It fades
I am awake 

 

 

 

Juntos
Juntos

This world is crumbling

I am me, but not myself

They are trying to kill us In my hands
Two embryos
Mine


We are the last 

 

 

 

La Llave Del Cielo
La Llave Del Cielo

Flying above
En la casa de Monterrey

Watched Papy Chuy

Grabs his chest
His heart
I see everything
He is in the hospital

Heart stops
I scream
They can see me now
I fall from the Heavens 

 

 

 

Calle Galaxia
Calle Galaxia

I am a child
La casa en Brownsville
I can’t find my family
The blades of grass cut my feet

I am bleeding
My path is blocked
Rabbit
Scorpion
Spider
They tell me I must choose

Pick destiny
Mind chooses Rabbit
Heart picks up Spider
He dicho 

 

 

 

No
No

Sitting in the branches

Tree of life
Six snakes surround me

One is translucent

Yellow eyes

He wraps around me

I cannot breathe
I am happy
Zahra screams

Spell is broken

I am afraid
I am suffocating

I take her hand

Help me 

 

 

 

Sightseers
Sightseers

Sleep paralysis
Six ancient beings surround me

Whispering
Pointing
They do not scare me
They can not touch me
I cannot move
I am afraid
I dig my fingernails in my palms

Wake up with cuts 

 

 

 

I Am My Mother
I Am My Mother

My mother’s hips

Strong and wide
I crawl towards her
She turns to pick me up

On her body, my face
I cradle myself
We are safe in her arms 

 

 

 

50 Cuts
50 Cuts

With my family
In Mexico, a plaza

Curandera in her tent
She calls me
Points to my heart
"Todo tiene que salir"
I nod
I must purge
She cuts me 50 times
I bleed into two silver bowls

My family watches
I am clean
