Asun Of The Revolution

In memory of Sr. Asuncion C. Martinez, ICM,84
+ July 21,1994


Who/what shall separate her from the land
That birthed her and now receives her into its sanctum
The land she helped defend against its desecrators
The land she opened us to as womanness of our being
Redeemed and reappropriated she is volcanoes
Of prophetic anger and flowers of justing love

A worthy memorium. People live on in the memories of those who stay behind as your poem beautifully confirms. Someday, we will all be united again.
