Dark clouds or quiet volcanos?
By Lester G. Medina
When I came to this country somebody said to me
‘What kind of English are you talking?’
At the time, that lash didn’t strike that hard
but it rumbled like thunder in the sky.
I replied nothing, lack of understanding
used to keep the dark clouds away.
Where I come from, saying nothing is better as well
people love volcanos only if they sleep quietly
in the distance.
I don’t know what upsets me more:
dark clouds or quiet volcanos.
