my collaborative comment to Ching-In Chen’s Collaborative Remix #2

What is your map of mythology? Can you tell it in 25 words? – Rachelle Cruz

mulatto — my lola told me the crows have driven allah out. exile? i mumble, soft breaths, wide eyes, 1001 fables bouncing around my skull. Dragging a bucket of chalk along the sidewalk until Pakistan, i drank an ocean. Spite the dreamcatcher, build a wall of cicadas, oxygen, and rage.

Do not believe a word your lola says
Do not believe her mulatto silence
Not singular, Not unique, A recurrent unit
Do not believe the hybrid orchestra

mulatto — my lola told me not to trust the poet. exile? i run away rips, smear, scar. Vibrating my bone broken in the backyard, collecting a spray of orchids in the shape of a cloud, i swallowed the cries of the river. its sad sounds. Spite the dreamcatcher, build a wall of cicadas, oxygen, and rage.
