There’s better things to find
like the next thing in need of love.
Ama a quien no te ama, responde a quien no te llama, y andarás carrera vana.
They saw me hugging a cactus
They pulled me away, only to laugh in my face
Refusing to respond
I ran off
IT was just a prickly sprout
I learned to remember to water HIM twice a month
Te quiero mucho…Eres lo major para mi
HE wasn’t growing enough
¡Vamos tu puedes!
I tapped HIDALGO on HIS head
whenever I came home
HE responded with small increments of growth
I placed HIDALGO next to Frida
I read HIM some Sort Juana Inés de la Cruz
HE smiled with a flower
HE nurtured my self
as I cared for HIS life.
Amor con amor se paga
