From my memoir, a story about illusion and iluciones after college graduation. “Vete a la Chingada Party“:
“I close my eyes and I’m a pair of legs in a brown satin skirt. I’m finally a college graduate, and this is my welcome home party, but my friends don’t know it yet. Yes, they’ve forgotten to call or invite me to look for records in Whittier. Yes, they hang out with Beto my ex who cheated on me, but they haven’t seen me in a miniskirt.”
Now at Rabid Oak Journal, from Cal State Bakersfield. Thank you, CSUB!
