agua bendita y sagrada tierra

take me to where
streams lie still
asleep in an hourglass

i will trade my glider
for a raft
and go around the world

chase after sea turtles
venture into the Amazon
catch minnows with my hand

swim ashore and walk
barefoot into jungle
scale the Andes

drink molten ice caps
and bask in the beatings of a naked sun
to breathe the fresh

thin air
intoxicated with coca
infused with enough starlight

to turn the equator
into arcs of fire
and build

mi casa
mi pueblo
mi corazon de amor
