Bad Girl

I travel light. I don't keep things for very long anymore because things aren't as sturdy. Things don't last.The only things I rarely throw away are memories.Though, I'm guilty of discarding those too, if they don't serve me.Nothing is worth the weight if it don't feel good, if it ain't an essential part of your growth, your soul-that thing that makes you, you- Music, like it is for EVERYONE, was (and is) a crucial, if not detrimental part of my life.

Let the Buzzards Eat Me Whole

60 pages, handmade and numbered ​2020 in a room, beyond a curtain- / a T.V. blares its voice, because talking / is for children- / and I know things children shouldn't know ​In an era of unprecedented global upheaval, every personal crisis stands in danger of being lost among the confusion.

Ablution by Ingrid M. Calderon-Collins (Paperback)

Love. The literal definition is, “an intense feeling of deep affection.” But, if you have ever been in love, you know it’s a bit more complicated than that. It’s a mix of fervor, longing, a pit in the gut, a loss of hunger, insomnia etc… This is a story told in a series of poems of two people who followed through with what love fed them, and ate and ate and ate from its open veins.

English proved to be comical at best. I was in 3rd grade when I was finally fluent. But I'm jumping ahead of myself.Before then, I had learned a few words by listening to American music back in El Salvador, from artists like Madonna, WHAM, Tears for Fears.Music always seemed to make its way into the most impoverished countries.It was a balm.

James Diaz's poetry collection, This Someone I Call Stranger captures seasons. He shows you winters made, not of snow, but of heat. He warped love into sunbeams, and explained sorrow through logic and defeat. There is discordance and simplicity in these pages. Anarchy, and a warmth conjured by so many ghosts.
