Poetry Break

Poetry Break

I’m sensing a trend here. Enjoy.

What exactly does a Hispanic look like?
Do I need to look like Juan Valdez,
And sell Folgers in a TV commercial,
Sift my fingers through Colombian coffee beans I picked myself,
sitting on the back of my reliable mule, Conchia,
next to a brokedown Chiva in an oversized sombrero,
for me to “look” Latino?
