How Amazing Is Grace 150 150 Carolina Hinojosa-Cisneros

How amazing is grace
She met me where the tender flesh
Bit the sharp sterile paperclip
I used to scrape the skin from my wrists

How amazing is grace
She masticated my broken
Spit it out where I was not welcome
And took the pit of my avocado stomach
Planted it in the mud of mi tierra

How amazing is grace
That I can witness
My own branches grow toward heaven
