Barrio Tale

La brown Sleeping Beauty
was head over heels in love with Prince Harming.

She forgave him each trespass,
telling family of her clumsiness,

how she’d walked into a door,
hiding the bruises on her back

until one night Prince Harming went too far
and put la Sleeping Beauty into a very deep sleep.

No kiss was going to wake her up
from the barrio fairy tale.
