Felicita Pedroza - Poverty Scholar and Boriqua Poet: A Poem

Felicita Pedroza
Saturday, March 13, 2010

LET ME

I want to blast the resonance of your voice to dance on your lips
I want to jump on your breast and glide down to your hips
Let me unwind on your cheeks and leap over your pores
Let me dwell deep within your heart’s core

I want to bathe in the flush of your cheeks
I want to be your valor when you feel weak
Let me roll around on your tongue
Let me breathe my passion into your lungs

I want to climb up your spine
I want to leave traces of kisses behind
Let me taste your neck and collarbone

Two-Spirits: a movie about Fred Martinez Jr

Mari V. Tuesday, April 13, 2010;

When I was little, I always knew my biological father was different than other dads. I used to tell my childhood friends, "My Dad acts like your Mom." I remember the times when he would realize he would seem more feminine and then try to 'buck up' and act more masculine. I thought it was always funny, and didn't really understand it when I was little. I remember telling him, "Dad, I like it more when your like a girl instead of you trying to be a boy."

It’s been a little over two years since I graduated with my B.A. degree in Humanities Public Policy while surviving on welfare with my three young daughters, thinking that not only would I be able to help change the world for the better, but to also have the sole ability to pull my family out of poverty and get a stable living wage job.

It was a warm night...A poem in honor of a young brother, Idriss Stelley, shot down by police

 

It was a warm night
the kind that drips
with pain

It was a warm night
filled with whispers
and screams

you can peel that
kind of night away
with your fingernails -
you can cry into
that kind of night
and no-one will hear you

it was a warm night
filled with you ...
