Poem #309 of 365

these butterfly wings
are the on-ramps to superhighways
for chicano/a progress towards
liberation. education and enlightenment.

the tiny little sticks connected on top
are utility poles strung together,
electrical wire stitches of power,
as we get sewn together
in hopeful expression
like so many bright flashes dotting
the landscapes across tejas

con honor y esfuerza.

(considering an original artwork by Jesus "Cime" Alvarado of El Chuco (El Paso), Texas)
