What’s the purpose of your trip?
Endonde viven tu familia?
move across, love across, touch across
what is transcended is imaginary, yet so real
the pit of never knowing if my grandmother had
aunts and the pit of the aunts I know and
privileged to leave and return to my family
while immigrants from 400 years ago, complicit killers
we are all one
Land Land Land. We bleed the land with greed.
But who hears the cry out of the mother land.
“You’re all my children.”
HOW INSANE IT IS TO FALL INTO SOMEONE
ELSE’S Dream OF AN INVISIBLE WALL?
HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN that this LAND WAS
NEVER YOURS? DONT YOU remember Beating
& Killing THE ORIGINAL PEOPLE OF THIS LAND
AS YOU STOLE IT AWAY? WHEN WILL YOU
PUT YOUR SELFISHNESS TO REST?
