Poema… confesión de un puertorriqueño

confesión de un puertorriqueño

–16 de junio de 2018–

por Luis S. González-Acevedo

mis tatarabuelos nacieron en puerto rico
mis bisabuelos en borikén
mis abuelos en su isla caribeña
mis padres en sus montañas
y yo –en su costa sur

la vida colonial me arrancó
tirándome en chicago
abandonándome en michigan, indiana, las carolinas
y ohio

encadenado gran parte de mi vida al imperio
medio siglo ha dejado una cicatriz lingüística
y posiblemente cultural, pero…

no te equivoques
no te confundas
ni juzgues

soy boricua


confesión de un puertorriqueño será publicado en un poemario para julio 2020–

Poem… when we vote | poem from columbus, oh

when we vote | poem from columbus, oh

–december 13, 2017–

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

when we vote…
beliefs & thoughts come alive
communities expose their hearts
you, y’all & i are revealed

because of your 2016 vote…
i will not set foot in your quaintness
i will not spend money within your borders
i will not engage your inhospitable terrain
i will not breathe your poisonous rural air

i have no need or desire
you don’t & won’t exist to me
archie bunker, i have no interest in you no more

cities are my home
in civilization, i claim sanctuary
my peaceful existence is urban


when we vote | poem from columbus, oh will appear in a future book of poems (release date | July 2020).

Book Language: ENGLISH | INGLÉS

Áxel Vivar is an average human,
an extraordinary person.

He was born in the past,
and will die in the future.
What will happen in between?

Áxel left his island paradise,
searching for the secrets of time.
Will he find them?
Will time let him?

Do geographical locations reveal time’s secrets?
What do cities, sites, and spaces tell us about time?

Can time’s birth-death boundaries be broken?
Can true love help him?
How?

Will Áxel return triumphant to his Caribbean home?

–a story of time & eternity, mortality & immortality, romance & love–

–a tale for mortals–


Author’s word… a future of dreams is experimental writing & storytelling. It’s a humble attempt at art –word art, an attempt that defies the accepted mechanics of storytelling. I gave little consideration to the rules & canons of writing encouraged by the contemporary, literary scene. So, I write as I think and speak –and this will have to do. Thank you for your patronage!
