Una Mujer

Soy solo una mujer,

an unguarded heart

and an untamed mind.

I am quick to drink

from the heaven

I trace in his features,

each time I visit his face.

I create new terrain for my stories as I start

at his eyes and fall deep along the lines of his mouth.


Yo lo miro,

through these tunnel visions,

these myopic views.

I see life

inverted, reflected in his skeptical gaze.


He is only a…

I was always a little confused as to how certain types of art are placed into certain genres at art shows. For one thing, it seemed to be purely subjective, depending on each artist’s concept of what that particular Genre was and some art didn’t seem to fit into any division at all!

Fairly new to Fresno and looking for studio/workspace. Any info. or advice?

  I like a quiet place, at least 9-foot ceiling, window and natural light, willing to share of course. Live off Herndon in NW Fresno, so within 5-8 miles preferred.

I don't sleep right without you

I don't eat at all without you

I can still smile and be happy without you

But with you I can do so much more

Como si fuera un insulto.

Con mucho orgullo soy mestiza. 

Soy mucho más india que la mazorca

Some more people decided to order some stuff, and on a bonus side I found my list of websites for charities and easy cash, how to save cash and get discounts <: plus I'm re-applying for financial aid so hopefully I wont be so hungry or give in to my lingerie&loungewear addiction. I should post some things online or something or try selling them.. I'll probably reactivate my facebook within the next 2 weeks and start networking&advertising again.

This is the year I wear dresses to school and call out everyone's malarky

Also the year I don’t get enough rest but dress cutesy-ish on Thursdays(kinda so I can go from school to art hop&jazz hop) but erm…

I’d also like to leave spare change around school on heads, smile at strangers, hug 3 different people, and give 1 sincere compliment a day. Most likely designating Mondays as lazy days. I wonder if the squirrels would take change instead of almonds.

Idk also I ordered this really plain bra and panty set because I wanted to…

Where does he find the time?

Where does he find the soul?

Tugs me along with careless selections of masterful songs

DJ, Músico, mi Maestro.

Here is an instrument for you to play,

beneath the skin,

where music begins,

the sound is mixed,


the beats find willing counter parts.

You can record straight into me.

Control the tempo and the bass,

teach me more

about my own rhythmic…

Red stained deputy's patrol car ,

victim of a strawberry war, 

traviesa de ojos grandes, 

curls caked in fruit.

" Una buena chinga te van a poner bonita", says the blond blue eyed man with the badge.

He is speaking Spanish, 

and it scares me

more than the knowledge my aunt Guille is going to smack me

for throwing strawberries at her friend's…

What would be

the best distance


he and I?

Would it be miles, or inches?

Hours, or days?

When what I want

the stretch

to be,


 only seconds and swift.

The shortest distance


his lips and mine.

The most desperate


from my


How long could it be?

Enough to hear him say

my name,

before I feel…

Mike Rios walks

below the yellow street lamp glow.

White T- shirt,

 black pressed pants.

He is wearing The Uniform.

His hands

are tucked away

in his pockets.

He shuffles his feet from side to side

and looks up,

Let’s talk about the pile of elephant dung in the middle of the room; namely, that adults in Fresno and Clovis consider a print from Target or Wal-Mart to be on the same level as an original painting from a local artist. Why is this? Well, I believe it is because they don’t think of paintings as a cultural medium, but as mere decorator objects. I think this belief…
