from farces
straight talkin'
bleeding heart
lived in a war
but opened doors
for other women
images of your reality
a surreal shadow
dreams of children
while raising a man
standing for principles of
libertad without a trace
of it ever coming home
where did you go
your heart an open trench
wrenched in the pain of loss
a cross to bear and wear 
in fists closed 
around a paintbrush
you fragrant flower of Mexico
too overpowering for some
for others not strong enough
to leave the frog in his big pond

your kiss made him a crown prince
