Malva Salva Trucha, Prison and Immigration Policy helps create a force

we are right there hoping that the conversation will shift

maybe we are hoping that donald trump will disappear

maybe that the landscape can change

maybe we can make a borderlandia

where the rides take you across the land

underneath the skin of pacha mama

where we can place together the hybridity

of our d.n.a.

we are no longer foreigner in our own snake skin

this is the mending of our beginning

somewhere in this we re-member we are two things

a nation of native of america before america before colombus

and a nation of immigrants for the word

there are too many names for the names

first nation peoples. across this turtle island

where the people have called themselves the peoples

before they were named anything else.

this is our homeland. all of our homeland

because it is nobodies. it will never be anybodies

she decides. she decides when it begins

and when it ends.
