Valentina Chumpitaz’s Peruvian poem~

I am from stray dogs running in the streets

Sand rising in the air when taxis pass by

The smell of Afrojados fills the air 

Laughter of kids wherever you go 

 

I am from Empanadas that you could die for 

Tres leches and torta de chocolate 

Pollo a la Brasa and ceviche 

Tallarines verdes y Lomo Saltado 

 

I am from “Muchacha apurate que vamos a llegar tarde”

“Ya! Al toque, lava los platos”

“Cholita, baila con migo”

“Que tengas dulces sueños Hijita”

 

I am from the loving glances of my mother and father

The over – scented perfume hugs of Tia Rosi and Tia Patty

And the kisses from my Abuelita
