Sonnet for Lorna Dee Cervantes
Lorna Dee Cervantes fused three into One,
gathered Nymph, Muse, and Goddess! So they say
she's an Exotic Woman. But she knows
how to amplify beyond that bias.
Grandmother Spider gave her the Thread
she transforms to techniques of poetry
which was her Method to Appease passions
of her Audience which she does Yes, she
does. But this is just her Introduction!
At first flowering, an Emplumada,
she designed Chicana Poetry; then
gave us more and more food for the Hungers
Suffered. She has placed her songs in Graves of
Genocide as Nymph, Muse, and Goddess Do.
