Itzpapalotl

Itzpapalotl
By Odilia Galván Rodríguez for my mother and all the mothers
butterfly warrior woman you were forged in fire fierce in your desire to transform yourself and your world from the red-orange flames to birth and inspire new nations without borders Oh precious star your beauty does not blind me nor do the tongues of your flames I am not frightened to walk into your embrace you Obsidian Flower who like the sharpest knife cuts through all the lies and shapeshifts tomorrows
