Tierra Amarilla

born from the side of a woman
like Cain and Abel

he struck a chord
in haste

the brown cat of Action Poetry
El Movimiento (place whiskers here)

how many poets answered the call
with a sword

or guns blazing sirens blaring
only Tijerina was not yellow

the rest of us took up the pen
or gave up

became teachers
the easy way out

or like so many
became the enemy
