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,
as you begin moving towards your future.
