The words of Poeta Guerrera

I am proud to present a voice that I first heard when we started Capicu Poetry at Area 51 in Brooklyn. Since then she has developed incredibly…writing everyday and I have often wondered when she has time for it all. She has blessed the Capicu stage numerous times and each time, her performance has gotten stronger and stronger. I recently listened to her first CD entitled “Mi Diario” and it really allows you to peek into the soul of a true poet warrior…a Poeta Guerrera.

Buen Provecho…

As I am,
The Urban Jibaro


Poeta Guerrera means Poet Warrior. That is, I am a warrior with words. Weapons have no place here unless you considers adverbs, adjectives, nouns, and facts to be so. I write because my soul forces me to. My first LP is entitled “Mi Diario,” properly named, because it is, in fact, my diary. I’m just a crazy militant girl trying to add my two cents to the world. Maybe in another life or another time, I was a philosopher of some sort. This is me, just trying to find me through expression.
