Telephone Booth # 679 by Pedro Pietri

Originally uploaded by oddthingies.

because I am one
of those passengers
that took off before
the airplane got off
the airport grounds
I cannot be called
A. Neorican
B. Nuyorican
C. New Rican
D. Barrirican
E. Ameri Can
I refer to myself
as none of the above
who has never left
the land deeply loves rum
which is holy water
to speak in tongues
after being Informed
your check ran out
& they are too drunk
to chase after roosters
