Chicano Poet

Thursday, December 06, 2012


Chamaco was not burdened
with his Indian past

the land was lost
and that was that

his language
now goobledygoop

his whole body
a wounded knee

his few victories
not worth the war paint

the scalps
better left unsaid

he's feeling lighter and lighter
like a hawk's tail feathers

not bring circus animals
into the desertion
