This Place Called Poetry - Jorge Aburto
2008
“It’s hard to imagine how bad you miss your family when you're really far away from them. It’s hard to tell them by phone or letter, ‘Hey, I miss you. I remember all the good times we had.’ But we can tell everything in poetry, by showing our thinking and our minds.” -- Jorge

From Jorge's poem "Historia"

Muchos pinoleros
dejaron nuestra tierra
buscando la manera
de brillar en su carrera
otros huyeron de la Guerra
y la miseria
refugieándose bajo la bandera
de las barras y las estrellas
tratando de olvidar todas sus tragedias
