These poems twirl their skirts as they explore bi-cultural identity, growing up, a young mother's struggles, and the limits of language. Half Guatemalan and half Anglo, the speaker worries about "black-topped boys with butterscotch skin" who whistle at her, but loves how flowers "explode into curls of crepe." She doesn't understand Spanish or why tragedy jabs into our lives, but still she sings.

I used poetry, rants and musings as a way to heal by writing whatever struck my muse at the time. Sometimes my words were like lyrics in the song of my life. I had a sister with a gypsy spirit back then, who inspired me to write, and begin my artistic journey. All my misspent youth..
