May you have enough money to pay your bills this month with a little extra left over for a bit of fun.


for Raquel Guerrero

A question Chicanitas sometimes ask
while others wonder: Why is the sky blue
or the grass so green?

Why am I so Brown?

God made you brown, mi’ja
color bronce—color of your raza
connecting you to your raices,
your story/historia
as you begin moving towards your future.


"Me tienes hasta la madre pero me tienes."
