Chicano Poet

Saturday, August 04, 2007

I am tempted to agree with what Ricardo has said so eloquently and no so eloquently. So enjoy the little of Chicano poetry that’s left. Also, the new novels that are being written lately are just plain crap. Whether they are written by R. G. or A.C., whether they are written by men or women they make me puke.

El Menso de Robstown

(El Menso grew up in the Fifties and Sixties in, of course, Robstown, Texas. Unsure why he calls himself El Menso : )

(Editor’s Note: When the editor was a young kid his family would take him to see Mexican movies in a big dusty tent in Robstown on Saturday nights. That was our weekend treat after picking cotton all week.)

Nothing like ol' bitter vatos who are no longer strutting their trajes. And I am sure you have read the novel of today, ese. At least, the current generation of writers know the veteranos as well as the present voices. Check out the new mocos@s, it might help you get rid of your carajo!
