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.
Editors Note: Mr. Jose Villarreal is one of several power-FUL PNNPlantation prison correspondents. As currently and formerly incarcerated poor and indigenous peoples in struggle and resistance with all plantation systems in Amerikkka, POOR Magazine stands in solidarity with all folks on the other side of the razor wire plantation.
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.

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

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

are the new cultural wave and bars with
twelve dollar cocktails are ongoing frat parties
