Chicano Poet

Tuesday, August 07, 2007


Borges being blind doesn’t know
that they buried his ass in Geneva,
but the rest of his body in Buenos Aires.

Vallejo died of hunger on a rainy day in Paris,
but now he eats everything he wants
and he’s fat like a Botero.

The cut off Victor Jara’s hands
so he couldn’t strum his protest lyrics,
but now he plays twenty guitars at once.

They shot Roque to keep him quiet,
but now his poetry’s louder than ever.
His killers put their hands over their ears in vain.
