Chicano Poet

for s. l. g.

El ocho patas had a granddaughter
who turned ten

and lit up the daytime sky
like a supernova

flowers exploded
in the desert

beautiful beaches
sprang up in the Arctic

the most bitter moments
in the history of the world

were turned sweet
by her birthday

and el ocho patas
loved her so much

that the moon
shone fiercely to impress her

keenly aware that
el ocho patas was watching
