I’m here

“I am begging: Let me be lonely but not invisible.”  – Natalie Diaz-

Let me tell you my feelings

Let me know if you want me

But don’t ignore me

I’m real

Not a puppet

I am here

You can call me

But don’t ignore me!

  1. Love the Diaz quote. Have loved her work since her first book back in 2013! Have you seen the Latinex Antholgy put out as part of the Breakbeat Poets Series by Haymarket Books out of Chicago? Fabulous series. The “don’t ignore me,” stands out. Thank you!
