American girl,

 but her parents

come from an island

 floating in the Caribbean.

 

Far away

from the native lands

 but the roots

have infiltrated the veins.

 

The mouth waters from the smell of

platano maduros.

 

Logic doesn’t matter,

the answer is in

the revelations of her sueños.

 

The intuition that guided

her abuela,

her mama

now her,

psychic at times.

 

Trained herself to be

calm & collected

 but

shake her up

and the

Latin blood fizzles inside.
