She’s a homophobic warlord with a miniature bible carefully tucked in her bra
dedicated to WAPA, SuperXClusivo, Cobo Santarosa, and Hector Travieso.  SuperXclusiov; This poem has been published in both the United States of America and the United Kingdom.  We are hoping that the future jingles from WAPA are a bit more specific about attacking the problem of homophobia in Puerto Rico.  The first jingle was a sad and insulting demonstration of how a Television Station is capable of fooling an audience into thinking they are part of the solution by not really saying anything specific about the issue.  We file experiences like this so that they don’t happen more than once.

It started before she could read
at Sunday mass
she’d stare at the faces of immovable angels—
La Madonna and byzantine saints

in cut-glass windows—imagining herself
speaking to the masses.

When her boobs started growing
the junior high jock,
a prodigy bible belt preacher,
invited her to Watchtower
study classes. They graduated,
married, and filled-out their NRA applications
on the same day.

Everything was stasis, but she walks-in
on her husband and the church's accountant,
a six foot love gift from the Castro district.

Two hundred nineteen years after La Bastille
she remarried,
joined a New Age theosophy movement
learned to suck her thumbs and self flagellate
while screaming slogans

about the constitutional rights of breeders
on a prime-time puppeteer program in Puerto Rico.
