Zapata, Rivera, Kahlo and Villa

All wrong and right for exquisite people

All shout dirty drunken songs of freedom

Vulgar, opinionated and grotesquely armed

Multicolored tragedy forges troubling resistance

Eat your imperfect tortillas, nopalitos and arroz

Tequila for courage and to wash over all scars

There are no shameful acts to pardon

Dear beloved and disgraceful creatures

Your tortured hearts feed a flawed desert garden
