    (for Grace Lee Boggs, en su viaje a Mictlán, in her journey to the ancestors)
    by Marcelo Felipe Garzo Montalvo

    montamos una ofrenda,
    prendiendo las velas,
    pidiendo del fuegito
    nuestro querido abuelito
    por un poquito
    de su calor
    y luz

    we flower,
    we cry,
    we sing,
    we give thanks,
    we reflect,
    we organize,
    with Grace

    we live,
    we love,
    we die,
    with Grace

    we root,
    we cross,
    we pray,
    we fly,
    we create,
    we return,
    with Grace

    we (r)evolt,
    we (r)evolve,
    we transform,
    we destroy,
    we Work,
    we connect,
    with Grace

    we witness,
    her move,
    changing shape,
    as she does,
    dancing dialectically,
    from elder,
    to ancestor,
    with Grace

    now that her soul,
    is growing,
    as large as the universe,
    we can look for her,
    in the clouds,
    in the struggle,
    in our dreams,
    in our tears,
    in the crystals,
    of our waters,

    waters that can never
    be shut off

    if you have cared,
    or worked,
    or prayed,
    or hoped,
    or died,
    or lived,
    for (r)evolution,
    you have done so,
    with Grace
