To Pedro Pietri

Posted to Utterances




a voice of rage in our nation is still
and i am quiet today very quiet today
i have become ancient with this anger in me
he spoke to my anger and, taught me to turn away
but i am quiet today very quiet today
I listen softly to puerto rican obituary's say
may i be angry today so angry today
the names the hurt the injustice the walls
make me angry today goddamn angry today
a simple voice in a swallowing city
spoken forgotten
until the TV goes black the rent comes due
the phone goes dead and the stomach aches from hunger
i am screaming today hear me screaminmg today
i can't pay for the life i'm living today
and so i must say:
i am angry today i am angry today
for his brothers and sisters and me i will say
i am angry today very angry today
