Orange que te quiero verde, that's Poeticah
The Visual Poetry of Poeticah explores the boundaries between poetry, languages, and traditional with computer visual art.
This is a poem from my chapbook Axtlanadu.
Two thumbs up; lets celebrate
Selena sunsmiles. Broad lips glow
through clouds. Warm breezes.
Warm springs that shine on faces.
Big Bertha flies on purple ribbons
where countless rosas blancas cradle
golden Easter eggs which bear
fresh Tejano sunsmiles.
The Coca Cola was on the air,
now beams inside the pizzeria,
soon runs into pepperoni on
cheese with crust for pizza tripping.
Lively fashions, built from practiced
needle strokes, reflect in diamonds.
Sequined brassieres shake, glitter.
Black tight pants twist and sway.
Ballads, rancheras, polkas, cumbias,
from San Antonio or Corpus Christi,
tumble down hills, break in the sand,
dissolve in the ocean, sail on.
Her cumbia bounces up the veins
through the heart. Voice it. Sing it!
Bidi bidi bom bom.
Bidi Bidi Bom Bom!
