Lorna Dee Cervantes
“Every day I am deluged with reminders / that this is not / my land / and this is my land. / I do not believe in the war between races / but in this country / there is war.”
“... I plant geraniums. / I tie up my hair into loose braids, / and trust only what I have built / with my own hands.”
Lorna Dee Cervantes, Chicana poet, activist
