Full Text:
2 People Personas in en L.A. I am a jewish woman. Second generation Los Angelina. My one grandmother was a communist, the other kept kosher. My father lost his job during the McCarthy era. My mother teaches differently-abled kids. Soy una mujer Judía, la segunda generación aquí en Los Angeles. Una de mis abuelas era comunista, la otra mantuvo la tradición kosher. Mi padre perdió su trabajo durante la era de McCarthy. Mi madre eseña a niños incapacitados. My lover was born on a farm in Cuba. Her father fought Castro. Her family fled to Miami when she was six. She went to school in a Spanish convent. Her mother knows the medicinal uses of plants and how to cook a whole pig. Mi amante nació en una granja en Cuba. Su padre peleó contra Castro. Cuando ella tenía seis años su familia se escapó a Miami. Asistío a la escuela en un convento Español. Su madre conoce el uso de las hierbas medicionales, y sabe como cocinar un puerco entero. We live with three old dogs in a red-roofed house by the harbor. We grow hot peppers and tomatoes every summer. Sometimes we can see islands and my lover remembers her home. Nosotros vivimos con tres perros viejos en una casa de tejas rojos cerca del puerto. Cada verano cultivamos tomates y chiles. A veces podemos ver las islas, entonces me amante añora su cuidad natal. © 1990 Sandra Golvin. From the series BUSZ WORDS, organized by Cheri Gaulke for the Los Angeles Festival.
