Please join us for our next La Palabra Poetry.  This one sounds EXCITING.


 

Poet/writer Fernando Castro will be the featured poet at our next La Palabra.  His support for our literary programming is remarkable.  After Fernando’s reading, we will feast on Taquizas catered by Chef Daniel Chiu.  This is a mini fundraiser in celebration of La Palabra’s support for professional and emerging poets -- all proceeds will benefit La Palabra.  We hope you will join us for wonderful poetry and gastronomical delights in honor of La Palabra.



We look forward to seeing you here in support of La Palabra!

Wom(b)an
by Vanessa Annibali


I once lived in an all-expenses paid luxury apartment
With plush walls and lush carpeting
There I was attended to constantly
I was never tired, hungry, cried or experienced pain
I once lived inside my mother,
And since I moved out
Life has never been the same.

Jealous c
by Frankie Hernandez

I wanted to be his guitar
the way he lifted her up
in worship
rubbed her curved body
against his abs
as he stroked
couldn't he run his hand
up and down
the back of my neck?
trickle his fingers quickly
across my front?
tease my hollowness?
make me sing?
I wanted him to be excited
to deliberately maneuver me
transfer his creative energy
to my instrumental
torso
