BACHA POSH / Poem by Luz María López

Poem by Luz María López



Free myself of isolation chains
all obscurity surrounding my mind
the walls that deny existence
open now the entrances of liberty
let me be a self beyond the curtains
that blinds all light, dampening the spirit,
for a bird is about to die!

I will gladly hide my soft curves
while the fresh air hits my face
with the flavor of danger
the sting of manhood
ruling the world.

Luz María López

*bacha posh – Refers to a cultural practice in which a daughter is sent off into the world as one of the boys.

Dentro de la voz: parte de mi poesìa activista que pretende concientizar sobre transgresiones a la mujer.
