“I’ve done my paintings well… and they have a message of pain in them, but I think they’ll interest a few people. They’re not revolutionary, so why do I keep on believing they’re combative?”

In the portrait

a shawl is draped

over her shoulders.

Terracotta lips

are set in granite.

Her eyes are the

color of the earth,

they scream the

anguish of the world.

Her image is imprinted

on cheap tapestry

hung from nails

on a farmhouse wall.

She is captured by the

hand of a woman uprising.

She is proud,

she is Mexico.
