From rape in the fields, to racism in the workshop, from discrimination in the sex, to pollution in the lungs, from imperialism in the brain, to the body cut into borders—this performance will cleanse the anxieties developed from the physical and social illness that has peaked these past three years through traditional folk healing presented in the medium of poetry. Through the hybridity of oral and written forms implemented using caesura, couplets, and the rosary, these poems dissect today’s traumas and prophesize each cataclysm if left unchecked. From these poems rises an urgency for activism against imperialism and patriarchy, marking the revival of the Chicana spirit.
