I’m not a leftover Spanish conqueror.

I’m not an American gringo with money.

Heritage is what I am.

Her thin brown legs,

Small brown feet,

Small brown breasts,

Hard marble dark nipples,

Black slanted eyes in the oval brown face,

Shiny black hair,

And the black wire brush coils triangle.

Fifteen to thirty thousand years ago,

Out of Asia down North America’s spine

To Mexico’s valleys, now cities.

 

Before?

I’ll repeat:

I’m not a leftover Spanish conqueror.

I’m not an American gringo with money.

Then, those coils,

 

How they came to be ….

He is one of the founders of the Narciso Martinez Cultural Arts Center Writers Forum in San Benito. He sometimes participates with the informal Resaca Writers Group in Brownsville. He prefers, however, to read to two or three attentive listeners - when asked!
