Chicano Poet

Thursday, June 20, 2013

In the late 1960s, a wave of activism took 
hold in the Mexican-American community. 
There were protests for equal rights, marches 
for better access to a quality education,  
and demands for greater representation. 
"Que viva la causa," "Long live the cause."

La Causa

La Malinche had
nice nalgas

and her boyfriend
didn't care

if she
had ditched her kids

according to her
they were with Tia Cuca

that stormy, rainy night
they made love as if

there was no tomorrow
a contradiction in terms

since they were
bound to maƱanas

by the 
very raza

the rest of us
have forsaken

and with
good cause.
