Pero, it seems I can only touch you
With my body
You lie with me
And my body es la hamaca
That spans the void between us
I am afraid that you will lie with me
And awaken too late
To find that you have fallen
And my hands will be left groping
For you and your dream
In the midst of la revolucion
“Our frustrations were built on the confusing feeling of knowing that the world is fucked up AND beautiful and we dealt with it by drowning ourselves in 40 ounces of liquid mixed with loud music that our older siblings made fun of.
Punk was a shit show, a wildly controlled, reckless, repetitive one-night stand with danger. It arrested people, it liberated people; it created enemies, it created comrades; it built fronteras, it built community.
Punk was the megaphone for my suppressed, teenage, Xicana voice. The collective voice of me and the homegirls.”
Awesome thank you! Will check it out.
