A Kiss of Thanks to Mexico

Though my country is the world,
I rejoice to reside in Mexico,
where GMO seeds are outlawed,
where same-sex marriage is welcomed,
where gender parity in every election
is enshrined in law.

Though my country is the world,
I rejoice to reside in Mexico,
where the bells and the birds
and Lake Chapala waves
make my morning orchestra,
and people smile on the street.

When I open my eyes from this dream,
when remembering and radiance rush in,
when the state I came from
welcomes me back
from the world that was my country,
I’ll blow a kiss of thanks to Mexico.
