flor de izote

 

like the leaves of the flor de izote

(i am ) strong

threatening to some (of them)

in the spaces i navigate

(i am) a cash crop that can’t be bought

piel el color de café

pelo el color de petróleo

ojos el color de cacao

(i, too) carry the border with me

where ever i go

(i am) (of them) (i am) (i, too)
