If you click on the translation link, for de la loza it has: the crockery. What the hell?

hmmm—she has secret histories, what secrets does this indicate?

those secret archives of hers – we’ll never know!

secret archives, backyard gardens, entire hillsides of east l.a., her influence grows like bees & hummingbirds

she’s everywhere and yet nowhere…. her influence is felt among all sentient beings in east los and takes over the coyote nights and the distilled mornings

hoo yip yip yip hoo di yip yip hoo

empty teenage lovers hangouts on top of the hills, invisible plaques on strangely familiar avenues, murals remixed into hallucinations that follow us everywhere, we won’t see her next one till it’s above us in the sky

or if we happen to find ourselves at one of her stoner-hill-top sites, it may appear amidst a haze of smoke – like an apparition of sorts.

a flock of birds flying over el sereno may assume her shape, followed by leaves difting into her initials

only to be quickly swept away by the boyle heights sky sirenas and the shape-shifting curanderas

and shadows flickering like a kaleidoscope remix of her reflection in store windows

but the hallucinogenic murals remixed in our psyche will forever stay emblazoned in our east los mythic mindsets

at the corner of eastern and huntington drive you have to back up from the intersection to check if the signage really says “sandra”
