We Stroggle Together-72We Struggle Together — Photo-Artistry by kenne

“listen to the clock
listen, to time, listen
to rattler’s warning maracas
listen, like the culebra, with
your tongues:
listen like rocks
listen to snow
hear it: hear it, mi gente, all
of it—hear the hate when its splashes,
the love when it weeps
listen to the rail lines ringing
listen to the cymbal sizzle of weeds,
the grito of wind
cutting around locked gates, palomas,
rummy wino’s holy Halsted cough
listen”

— from the poem Listen by Luis Alberto Urrea
