PO' Poets

He Had Gold Records I had Gold Chains-RIP Micheal Jackson

Tribute by RAM/Po Poets Project at POOR Magazine


Noemi Martinez is a chicana/boriqua queer single mami to 2 living in deep deep south texas. We are 4 miles away from the border and seeing the border patrol on the way to the kids school is common, but still takes my breath. I was raised by a single mami, we were six, and travelling that line of poor, working poor, almost making it and then sometimes not. And then I am here again with my kids.
