A cherry lipstick red 1974 Chevrolet glided down 24st street in “la mision” as it’s called by La Raza and so many other working class communities throughout the centuries who built this beautiful barrio after the missionaries stole it from the Ohlone Nation.

Prison Birdwatching

Editor's Note: Original artwork by Jose H. Villarreal, 2015.

The rays of light splash across the upper concrete walls of my prison “yard”. The sun so bright that the wire screen roof almost disappears from its brilliance. A swath of blue sky is stretched across its small patch like a tarp over the back of a pick up truck.

The Ant trudged on with the tiny white speck in its hands, walking what appears at first glance to be aimlessly, but in all actuality is to a destination.

MI HISTORIA...

[Scroll down for English]

Bueno parte de mi historia .

ERNESTO .El nombre que eligieron mis padres,

cuando naci eso hace ya mas de 52 años.

Ahora tengo un nombre espiritual que es YEI CIPACTLI en LENGUA NAHUATL

SIGNIFICA 3 COCODRILO, el # 3 YEI significa : CREACION

Y COCODRILO : donde se origino la vida y que emergio del agua yen su espalda traia los 4

colores del maiz.

Mi motivo principal de estar aqui, fue la noticia de que un bebe estaba en camino y seria el nuevo

the new mission

being in the mission is becoming

like a benetton ad or like living

in disneyland—no longer a place

of everyday people knowing the

the hardness of daily life and yet

creating joy and beauty

out of a myriad of struggles

 

instead of theater, poetry, dance, music and art

expressing the aliveness of many cultures

indoor miniature golf and outdoor bowling

are the new cultural wave and bars with

twelve dollar cocktails are ongoing frat parties
