Poem: Casa [MP3 + Text]

“why does cooking mean so much to you? You carribeans act crazy about food -that’s so over the point” a brother told me

and it is so

My dad built a casa, a place i never have been to but i see it when the garlic is burning dark in my oil filled pan

My dad built a casa

as my black ancestors did

they built it in their hearts

they recreated it

everyday

with garlic and rice

in the kitchen

on the gas-fire in front of their houses built with corrugaded sheets

In the backyards of the spanish colonial masters

in the kitchens of white feminist who prove their freedom on the backs of black bodys
