POETRY
Resist
Luis Lopez-Maldonado

I am here  cuz  I am  too  Mexican  for  Americans  too  American
for  Mexicans & too  feminine for masculine, I am here cuz even as bodies keep dropping 

jails  keep  maxing &  whites  keep  robbing, these  large  brown  hands  with  nail  polish
will rise  &  fist up for freedom for revenge for tradition & for that  little queer brown boi  

that has yet to be born.
