Winged Palabras for Francisco X. Alarcon

— Joe Navarro

Every time I see a monarch
Butterfly, I think of
Border-free flight
North to south
South to north
No passports, no migra
No deportations
No familias ripped apart
No political boundaries
Just freedom to travel
Mariposas, winged palabras
For Peace, equality, justice
Every time I see a monarch
Butterfly I think of
Palabras trilingües
Nahuatl, inglés, español
Traveling freely from the
Mind of a poeta y maestro
Palabras de esplendor y sabiduría
Murals of palabras volando sin puntuación
Por todas partes in the minds,
Souls and hearts of the world
Then I wonder to myself and aloud
To Francisco X. Alarcón
Who will tend to las mariposas now?
