La Llorona Drops By My Lyrical Hoes

Leave me alone. I’m just writing poems.
Nothing illegal here, nothing at all,
but scribing for my people is all I’m
capable of, not much else after all
Yo, I'm just another lyrical Hoe,
a half breed Mexican Indian whew,
a historical non-entity, shrew,
whatteva. When it all comes down again,
I’ll remember the slight annoyances,
the tongue depressor inside of my mouth,
woman-of-coloreds are so desirable.
A haunting female is crossing the page.
She's my madrina. Her cries are mine
and this--my territory to avenge her.
