Mis bendiciones

A poem by Jeannette Lozano.
Mis bendiciones

My mother's
"accidental birth"
in a mexican
colonia, cold
and hungry

My grandmother
taught corazones to cook
in English
praise in Spanish

I dream of the
train my mother
took across
la frontera

I stare at a mural
of a revolution I have
learned about in books,
brown solidarity

I dream of an old man
smoking, caring for
horses, far
from home
