René tells us:

I were given this tattoo of Christ the Redeemer at DV8 Tattoos in Brotherly love, CA. I used to be 18 on the time and wasn’t a author then. I’ve altactics been drawn to spiritual iconography and the concept that of God within the conventional spiritual side but additionally the conclusion that ‘mom can also be God.’ The poem [below] invokes my mom as a ‘grasp of demise,’ a commonplace theme noticed in a lot of my poetry with offers with the intersection of border violence and the load that it carries from technology to technology. 

The Invocation
I requested mom
What’s demise?
She became to the southern solar, hand on her waist
Thoughts on her pistol
Xibalba, land of the useless
The place the skeletons devour candy bread
Who shot down demise himself
Cracked open tombs
With black hair and
Silver metal
Killed all gods
New and outdated
Wisest and cruelest
I requested mom
What’s a god?
Sufferers of the night time and chilly metal
I’ve smashed their vials and
God is located
Because the scar I wounded to your tummy
In April, at the day you
Had been born
