Piece by Piece by Luis J. Rodriguez
Piece by piece they tear at you: peeling away layers of being, lying about who you are, speaking for your dreams. in the squalor of their eyes you are an outlaw. dressing you in a jacket of lies - tailor-made in steel - you fit their perfect picture. Take it off! Make your own mantle. Question the interrogators. Eyeball the death in their gaze. Say you won’t succumb. Say you won’t...
A couple of weeks ago I was out in Holland, MI visiting Hope College for a weekend. Surprising to me, I found that I left semi-interested.

She Has No Standards
You said I sped up my growth. Tell me, is that why my legs extend longer than yours? Is that why body is better developed than yours? Is that why old men plead at my knees for me, until I say I’m not 18?. Until I remind them that with an emergency call I can terminate the life they have spent and seen?
