[Elizabeth Soto, Associate Editor: There is an inherent lineage that accompanies a recipe, a cure, a remedy. Angel is gifting us with that lineage here, a call to survive, to tear down and rebuild. They ask us to hear the “song of reckoning” in our survival, in our forward movement.]

Eat the heart of your oppressor con un habanero.

Add some salt y limón to taste.


Tear every prison down.

Open community gardens

where they once existed.


I do not understand the gestures of capital.


I have only seen success in our survival,

y amor, how we survive is a song of reckoning.
