“Reasons for audience members to envy the dancers of Compañia Flamenco José Porcel: The dances are evocative and exciting, blending traditional flamenco with some decidedly more contemporary music, moves and looks.

Hola, amigos!

Bienvenidos a la Antología de No Se Habla Español!

The idea for this anthology of poems and short stories

Came from the prompt – No Se Habla Español, that inspired me

To write the opening piece. When I finished writing it,

I thought – why not reach out with this prompt to my

Community of Los Angeles and beyond?

 

First Poem by Victor Sotomayor

Cleaning Ladies of the World

 

Cleaning ladies of the world,

Unite and take over!

Cleaning Ladies of the world

Unite and take over!

With their sweepers and Windex,

Getting down and dirty,

Standing

Behind a door

Or inside the next cubicle

Looking through the trash

They’ll always find the truth…

Behind the curtain,

Under the staircase

Cleaning ladies lurk

And gather dirty secrets that

CEO’s were not careful enough to hide

The truth shall be exposed

Don’t mess with them cleaning ladies!

Cleaning ladies of the world,

Unite and take over!

Cleaning ladies of the world,

Unite and take over!

Cleaning ladies of the world,

Unite and take over!

Madres de familia…

Profesoras del mundo…

Trabajadoras sociales…

Costureras del mundo…

Empleadas domésticas…

UNITE AND TAKE OVER!

No Se Habla Español

By: Victor Sotomayor

English spoken here We don’t need no wetbacks No stinkin’ Latinos
We don’t need you!

Go back to wherever it is You came from… Fucking wetbacks, Taking away our jobs!

Go back and Don’t come back!

RESPONSE:

Regresaría
si no fuera porque Mataron a mi padre y a mi madre A machetazos

Regresaría
Si no hubiesen quemado mi aldea Esos pinches narcos Dejaron su huella
De violencia y corrupción
En nuestra comunidad campesina

Regresaría…
Con mucho orgullo y dignidad Extraño a mi tierra,
A mi cultura
A mi raza
A los míos

Claro que regresaría… Regresaría,
Mil veces regresaría!

Do my children know more Spanish than I do?
You know why I hired you, América, my job requires me to travel quite often so I needed you
to attend to my children while I was gone…

Well, little did
I know that you were teaching them Spanish… And without my consent? How dare you!

Now they are more likely to be the target of bullying… Thanks a lot!

No
Español, América! Pick up your check on your way out the door… Your services are no longer needed ’round here.

RESPONSE:

Si supiera usted como sufren Jason y Michael, mis dos ángeles divinos,
cuando le ven partir
a sus importantes

viajes de negocios…

Si supiera como le quieren aunque se lo digan en Español, puesto que así yo les enseñé…

Ay, si
Como no!
Más importante son su Manicure y su

pedicure que sus propios hijos!
Más importantes
su Rolls Royce, sus joyas y su pinche dinero…

Nada menos me merezco
que una patada en el trasero… Ni a sus perros los trata así…

Dios bendiga a mis
babies, Miss Carter, rogaré a la virgen para que me proteja a mis angelitos.

Part III

English in the classroom!
I will not allow you to speak Spanish in my classroom.

Sorry that you
didn’t understand the assignment that I gave you to do,
or the subject we’re
covering today,
or the lyrics to the National Anthem,
or our American History and the U.S. Presidents…

Sorry that you cannot read nor write.

That’s not my
problem.
You’re just one student and you can’t expect the whole class to wait on you to catch up… You’re just
going to have to work harder than everyone
else, prove to your peers that you’re perfectly capable…
No Spanish in my classroom! Next time I hear you
speak Spanish

either in class or during recess off to the principal’s office you go, comprende?

RESPONSE:

Yes, Miss Sánchez, sorry… Perdone si no le entendí la primera,

o la segunda, o la tercera vez

No puedo escribir ni leer el Inglés pero tampoco debo hablar Español…

Sé que usted no tiene tiempo para mi… Yo lo sé…

Algún día podré
comunicarme en su idioma,
Miss Sánchez, algún día le contaré mi historia… como cuando crucé la
frontera en el desierto durante una oscura noche sin luna, entre coyotes y serpientes,
arañas y escorpiones,

perros rabiosos y ratas de desagüe,
entre la mierda y la sangre,
nadando entre los cuerpos de aquellos que no llegaron a cruzar como yo…

Algún día, Miss Sánchez, one day
I’ll tell my story…

Espuma Sangrante

By: XÁNATH CARAZA

Para los 43 estudiantes de Ayotzinapa
(11 de octubre de 2014, Acapulco, Guerrero, México)

Este mar que lame el arena
Olas hambrientas
Testigos sonoros
Luna de agua con ojos quietos Inmóviles palmeras mudas frente a mí Caminan los rayos del amanecer en las calles Marchan ante el contenido rugido del mar Aves migratorias en el horizonte
Con ellas vuelo
Arena salmón lamida por la espuma sangrante Mientras cuarenta y tres niños perdidos Gritan en tus líquidas rojas entrañas Aullidos sordos, aullidos sordos
En este mar estático que ruge
Ruge mar, ruge, ruge sus nombres
Para la eternidad

Translation:

The sea licks the sand
Hungry waves
Resounding witnesses
Moon of water with quiet eyes
Mute, immobile palm trees before me Dawn sunrays walk through the streets They march before the restrained roar of the sea Migratory birds on the horizon
I fly with them
Salmon sand licked by bleeding foam While forty-three lost children
Howl in your liquid red entrails
Silent screams, silent screams
In this static sea that roars
Roar, sea; roar, sea.
Roar their names
For eternity

 

Wetback

By: MAGDALENA MURILLO

What did you say? Calling me a wetback, my mind is soaked with pain liberation I aim!

I’m a wetback
walking through locked doors; they still are
here I am digging a hole in your land

I’m a wetback
must re-state neither moons
or suns request permits to shine in Amsterdam or France, get in freely,
about them nobody says anything,
Look how stars are entering
shinning up on London skies?
Does the Queen accept them?

Many are wet, that’s reality They’re wet in shame!
They’re soaked in lust!
They wet their beds day and night All are pigs inside!
Diving themselves in mud!
Very few care
their thoughts are legal, regardless of how harmful it is for niños, Why the fuck should I be ashamed!

I’m a wetback
I‘m more than aware
I’m thriving to evolve
perhaps the sun could dry my wet soul I was hungry, that’s why I came, I’ve perforated those walls
the ones that wish to tear me down

I’m just planting
seeds where sprouts shall grow;
I am a golfer digging holes but you keep calling me a wetback

The wind is blowing
maybe, maybe?
I don’t doubt that God remains vigilant even for wet backs, like me

The wetback is alive
ripping off trees once planted,
in those holes along the boundaries, that almost stopped him

The wetback is alive
shall never dry completely
soaked feelings shift one’s way of thinking, tears are needed on the fields,
sensing pain from another side could soften hearts

We all are wetbacks
we don’t choose when or where we are born people are born on rivers,
in streams of sorrows
wetback will stay till tomorrow

I’m a wetback swimming in rivers and oceans with hope, I am a wetback
I know

La Pocha de la Libertad

By: IRIS DE ANDA

Te pareces a la statue de liberty asi bien pretty
con tus flores verdes banderas picadas
y estrellas caidas

Holding patriotic
at the tip of your tongue head held high emotions a mess because you love everyone you set your eyes on

Night sky
in the wind of your hair boots grounded deep swift sign language between strangers you know better than me

Cross my heart
& hope to live somewhere between the land of dreams & the tierra of mañana

Ay, querida luna que atraviesas fronteras tu reflejas mi corazon de alas y promesas en un lugar
que no existe

Pocholandia dreams linguistic streams run from here to there to nowhere
to now here
to the summer
of our discontent

Dedicated to Jose Montoya el maestro who reminds me our stories still need to be told.

THE HIGHWAY OF TEARS

By: JESUS AGUILAR

“Get down on the ground! Nobody moves! Nobody gets hurt! This is a raid and you are all under arrest!! Your crime? Taking shitty jobs that Americans do not want”, said the man with the badge and gun moments after bursting through the door with the rest of the posse behind. With tasers, batons and guns drawn; symbols of American tax dollars at work in their finest hour, the collection of human beings begins. The Bouncers of Global Capitalism look upon their pray with utter contempt. One by one they are pressed against the wall. No different than the victims of New York’s Stop and Frisk policy. Many lay on the floor with the bouncer’s knee on their neck. Much the same as Iraqis being prepped for an inferno stay at Abu Ghraib. Some stand there with their hands up in the air with a petrified look of horror that one finds in the stock footage of Jews being rounded up in the streets of Europe during World War 2. A bi-product of the Clintonian liberal dream that is NAFTA.

One by one, the shackles of hypocrisy are tightened upon the hands of labor that make the land of the free and the home of the brave breath in this toxic environment polluted by corporate greed. And one by one they are picked up an made to march as a human sacrifices to the of altar for the capitalist God – a for profit corporate run prison.

The tears, despair and feelings of hopelessness weakened them to a state of exhaustion but they finally made it to the golden chariots of Homeland Security buses that will take them on the on that fabled highway. The prayers and cries begin to flow once inside. Suddenly, silence reigns supreme. God’s salvation? No. Before them stands the supervisor of the raid looking at them with chrome sunglasses so that they can see their reflections of tears, pain and heartbreak. So, begins the journey on the Highway of Tears.

“Quien va a recojer a mis hijos? Mis hijos!!”, they cry out. Upon the Highway of Tears play out the memories of their children, birthdays, the first day of school, running home to hug mom, dad, the family portraits to send to the grandparents back in their ancestral homeland. No asphalt, trees, concrete but memories permeate the Highway of Tears as they are driven off. But the tears always stay. And as is always the case of The Highway of Tears, the children were never forgotten.

por un mejor mañana

 

Hello Manzanaar!

By:POGO SAITO

Hello Manzanaar!
Nobody’s there but a city of ghosts and sadness Hello Manzanaar!
Nobody’s there but a brown sign along the highway Now People walk in,
people walk out on their own, of their free will For the ghosts, nothing has changed Specters of buildings haunt the desert bearing stone witness shadow mountains Hello Manzanaar!
Nobody’s there
To remember those checks of regret and “redress” Because it’s happening again
They learned from the past
Round up the “enemy” in secret one by one and call it “Patriot Act”
Hello Manzanaar!
Nobody’s there to be outraged at the repetition Nobody.
