Some excerpts from poems:
this is my apology poem
i’m sorry for having written so many poems
and so few praising you

the love-armies assembled
but i did not enlist

i’m tired of soft poems today
i want my words to
jump up and stab a racist cop
put on gloves
sweat and bruise and bleed
help a migrant pick a thorny crop

so what kind of bullets are you putting in your gun

if i'm hanging around
the wrong ol' town
i'm a spic
can i be american?
i'm trying to put into words
the poetry that drips from your body

may God bless me
with my own
nancy Reagan

maybe everywhere
is in the middle of nowhere
maybe it’s all just physics

what street
will be the last one
my casket rolls through

pero la realidad es
el amor no es únicamente la belleza
los eróticos fuegos en los cielos estrellados de Neruda

¿qué sabía yo
de la viscosidad del amor?
