Of The Chicana Poet Rebecca Gonzales

In a cave I try to hide
from Dubya
and his evil ways

I could not justify
to the
chicano gods

the way Bin Laden
is not
obliged to do.

If all we have
are just these words
and these few stanzas

then we
must stand
out in front

and make sure
the words are sharp
like obsidian

to extract
the heart
from these non-Aztecs

that search
for La Malinche
but find this wrath instead.
