La Poética de la Alcapurria
“Sharpening with Guaguancó
Sharpening with Guaguancó
Alcapurria como yo.

Alcapurria como yo.
Alcapurria como yo.
With the Salsa
I’m coming on.

With the Salsa
I’m coming on
With the Salsa
I’m coming on
Alcapurria como yo.

Alcapurria como yo.
Alcapurria como yo
Transformando el guaguancó.

Transformando el guaguancó.
Transformando el guaguancó.
Alcapurria como yo”.


I’m not coming on
with measures
 of verses
tampoco with structures
of rhytms.

My Poetic
shares with
Pedro.
Mickey.
Bimbo.
Tato.
Miguel.

My Poetic
is a long story
as Puerto Rican,
Nuyorican,
Post-Puerto Rican-American.

Since the Gringos Invasion
my Epic was
Affirmation,
Nation,
Identity.

My journey
has been
an Accumulation
of souls,
ñame, yuca,
plátano y  yautía.

Moviendo a las masas,
avoiding
disintegration
and
recovering
La Historia.

This unknown
Historia
that you minimize.

It’s easy
to say
these Spics
do not belong
here

because
 their English
is Broken.

These People
have a different Color.
A different Accent.
A different Flavor.

Yes, Flavor
with all types,
all languages,
all races,
all abolengos.

One day
when the decision
to write,
and
to speak out
was done,

We settled
our Angry,
Misery,
Obituary
in your Historia.

La Poética
Es
de la
Alcapurria
mixed with
verduras
fritas
con manteca.

Sure is not
the manteca
you are thinking about.

But
let me tell you something,
We are
Community.

We  have
to express you
more than
this Historia.

With Alcapurria,
Pasteles,
and drinking
Coquito.

A Poetic
above.

Constructing,
complaining,
separating

our sorrows,
pains,
and ambiguities.

A Poetic
of Human
Peace.

When all the doors
open
we stood up
and dwelled
a place

Un Nuyrorican Poet Café
where
we joined
with
Pedro.
Mickey.
Bimbo.
Tato.
Miguel.

Where
we joined
Cantos.
Beats.
Rhytm.
Poetry.

A Poetic
of Relation
con
El Mundo.

A Poetic
which
deletes
Roots
to be
with you.

A Poetic
of
Non-Sense

without
Simple Sound
as you like
Rumba.

As you  like
to dance
Salsa.

A Poetic
brings you
sentiment
for surviving,
for fun,
for working,
for raising
a wealthy Family
as you have done
Yours.

A Poetic
based in
Icons
how mi Abuela
me contó.

Icons
to rebuild,
to introduce
something
to my Children.

To reveal
something
to my Generation,
to the Generation
of  my Grandson.

To have
a Puerto Rico
that
I’ve never seen.

Un Puerto Rico
de
Imaginación.

Un Puerto Rico
who
believes
tomorrow
será mejor.

Un Puerto Rico
who
creates
from here
Su Libertad.

My Freedom
is
Your Freedom.

My Fraternity
is
Your Fraternity.

My Equality
is
Your Equality.

A Free
Puerto Rico
as
Washington and Jefferson
dreamt
for having
Your America.

Land of Opportunity
           
but
Division.
Poverty.
Hunger.



A Land
forever
Free and
Ascended
how
My Paradise
Island
is

 and
America
Doesn’t
Want.
