A Quick Quihúbole

  Truth is, I wrote this for the Chicanao Mestizaje del Valle Imperial, for the shades of brown.  And so, even though I know this might not shade everyone in The Desert, I hope the Shades stretch and reach that certain someone…or two or 70-something-percent.

See, I’m not coming to you with a black\and\or\white perspective here; I’m talking about the shades of brown: and that’s the truth, you know.  I want you to see the truth, to see your shades.

Cuz, la neta-la neta, the truth comes in shades of brown—just look around.  And when truth is written down, truth is poetry.  And this is my poetry : these are my Shades of Brown.

Puro Chicanao Love.

    ¿¡Brole!? ¡Calecia!
    Seriously, good stuff. Made me homesick for the Valley and my people.
