red #1

By Natalja Vazquez Adams

My dad said I looked red today.
Maybe he was talking about my ancestors blood
stained on my knees on my hands
Maybe he was talking about
The cuts i had within my body the spaniards had left
Or maybe he was talking about the skin i was born with
My ancestors had gifted me
