M. O.

Abuela's modus operandi
was simple and complex

her ancestors
had dropped virgins into wells

had cut out
the still beating heart

their stone temples
honored serpents and the like

abuela's rules
were simply and complex

and those very ideals
struggle to surface

and to sink
inside of me today.
