Linked with our presentation of Piri Thomas – USA.
It’s got our beautiful children
living in all kinds of hell
hoping to survive and making it well
Swinging together in misty darkness
With all their love to share
Smiling a Christ-like forgiveness,
That only a ghetto cross can bear.
Excerpt of ‘Born Anew at Each A.M.’
See here on his own website some of his Poetry Works:
A First Night At El Sing Sing
Born Anew at Each A.M.
Cara de Palo Thoughts
If in the Moment of Passing
I Have Seen
Love is a Sharing
No More Trumpets of Despair
Sermon From The Ghettos
Softly, Puerto Rican, You Ain’t Alone
The Eyes of My Heart
The Formed Faces of All
What Is The Thick Black Line?
And here about his Prose Works:
Down These Mean Streets;
