¿Perdón?

How many times can

you say sorry?

to

            a woman who knows her caminos

            Her hair screams Africa

            her mind is the Atlantic

            lectora de mentes

A woman who no longer waits

A strong-leave-me alone lady

never a llorona

A pants- and -skirt bien puestos

            A sábelo-todo

            lady with heavy books on her brain

            An Einstein with a Latin touch

Stop quoting Neruda

Stop taking classes to dance bachata

Stop pretending you like the MoMA

Quit.
