"Hacer América grande otra vez"

Yesterday, she stoked my hair

Today, she did not.


Yesterday, she picked my clothes

Today, I dressed myself.


Yesterday, she made my lunch

Today, I feed myself.


Yesterday, she braided my hair

Today, it goes unbrushed.


Yesterday, she said she loved me

Today, she said nothing at all.


Yesterday, she was my life

Today, she is a distant memory.



She was here.



She is gone.
