Hermana, Resist

June 27, 2008

I’m really liking this chapbook by Noemi Martinez that I just got today in the mail. Check it out. Her website is Hermana, Resist

it’s foolish to think of intangibles
in these times of war
to think of balls unraveling
when we cannot define
love or peace
to think we can overlook
lo que la historia nos dice
en pencar que nacimos
en diferentes siglos
de diferente tiempos, familias
me gustaria haberte conocido
al principio, cuando tuve
noches
noches que el aire del tiempo no ha visto


from her poem “Que no me encuentres una noche como esta”
