My tía is called crazy
 
A red-lipped beauty marked 
 
    H o t  t a m a l e 
 
She will turn a room hot or cold in one look 
 
Her presence, one of adoration and remorse
 
From seatbelt checks to hospital sit-ins 
 
she taught me that to be crazy was to be free
 
To drive fast blasting emo love songs 
 
To cry at the steering wheel 
 
To laugh, passing through stop lights
 
In light of our bound
 
Of heartbreak, disaster and communion 
 
My sanctitude lies in her arms 
 
she taught me that
 
 
 
Mis hermanos mis primas y todos mis sobrinas 
 
Your smile exudes the light of the stars 
 
You feel like history
 
You are powerful and wise 
 
beyond your years 
 
My gratitude is lost in your holding gaze 
 
On roses and Famous Taco we share 
 
 
 
I'm thankful for your rose 
 
Your thorn and your blush petal
 
Lessons of love and loss 
 
I forgive you for all the pain 
 
The tears of our ancestors that carry 
 
Your cries, oh how they vary 
 
In songs and platitudes 
 
In emotion and in the lack thereof 
 
The coldness of your gaze on enemies 
 
Though no one can cross you like blood 
 
the love still remains 
 
A love letter to my sonrisas 
 
The songs of amorfoda we sing 
 
In unity, in desperation, in amor de siempre

Debajo La Misma Luna 
 
 
 
Mi amor la luz 
 
Mi amor de luz 
 
La luna se encuentra con el sol al crepuscular
 
Saber tus ojos 
 
Tu tranquilidad
 
Mi potencial 
 
Nuestro feliz canta la misma canción bajo la misma luna 
 
Besan por la última vez al alba 
 
Decir adiós al mañana 
 
para siempre y nunca más
 
Mi amor de la luna 
 
Mi santa eterna
 
Verte es conocer la danza de las almas
 
Las caderas del océano,
 
 la luna y la marea
 
Sincopan al ritmo
 
De azúcar que rueda de los labios
 
El dulzor te conoce bien 
 
Como pensaba, yo también lo hice
 
Mi eterno enamorado 
 
 
 
My love the light
 
My love of light 
 
The moon meets the sun at twilight 
 
To know your eyes
 
Your tranquility 
 
My potential 
 
Our happy sings the same song, 
 
beneath the same moon 
 
They kiss for the last time at daybreak 
 
And say goodbye to tomorrow
 
Forever and never more 
 
My love of the moon 
 
My eternal saint 
 
Seeing you is knowing the dance of the souls 
 
The hips of the ocean 
 
The moon and the tide 
 
Syncopate to the rhythm
 
Of sugar that rolls from your lips 
 
The sweetness you know well 
 
As I thought I did too 
 
My eternal valentine
