Izote

Flores de izote (capl@washjeff.edu).

"Those who could just barely come back,

Those who had a bit more luck,

The eternally undocumented,

The do-anything, sell-anything, eat-anything,

The first to take out a knife

The saddest sad people in the world,

My countrymen,

My brothers."

"Poem of Love" by Roque Dalton
