Sandanista Avioncitos

Narrated by Gerardo Vazquez



The little airplanes of the heart 

with their brave little propellers 

What can they do 

against the winds of darkness 

even as butterflies are beaten back 

by hurricanes 

yet do not die 

They lie in wait wherever 

they can hide and hang 

their fine wings folded 

and when the killer-wind dies 

they flutter forth again 

into the new-blown light 

live as leaves
