My Dearest Xingona,

I know that we saw nuestras madres struggle at the hands of machismo
It prepared us to fight with our fists
But Mujer, be wary
The most insidious monster
Does not always lunge at you with his body
Sometimes he slithers his way into your sanctuary
His approach is gentle
He is a chameleon
He will blend into all the things he knows you want
And when your spirit is high
And your soul is centered
He will strike
For he is a snake
He will leech off of your momentum
Ten cuidado, hija
Snakes sleep next to you not preparing to love you, but preparing to eat you
