UNITY COALITION|COALICION UNIDA'S  6TH ANNUAL
Ganesha
by Neil De la Flor

Somewhere between the Big Bang and the Big Gulp, the
universe lives silent and cunning in her unstable mink suit.

Somewhere between the atoms that create us and the atoms
that will destroy us, the universe lives benignly unaware of our
prayers and promises.

Somewhere between the edge of the cosmos and the comic
book store, the universe lives in the smile of a boy and/or a girl
standing on the southwest corner of 42nd Street beneath the
bearded sky. In a blizzard. In awe of the universe. Wearing white
mittens and Long Johns.

Somewhere between the crucible and the last dance, the
universe lives in every elementary particle that powers every
disco ballroom from Heaven to Las Vegas...
I'm not my father's Son
by Y'señia Almaguer

I am not my father son. He wanted Macho he got Mujer ,...
The complete opposite. To him I was the opposition of life ... Death !    

He wanted softball,... I gave him jump rope.... Jumping toward the sky  
in hopes ... But no hope.  

He wanted tough I,  I  gave him sissy.  He wanted balled -up Fists,
I gave him broken Wrists .   

Him,...  Ashamed as they commented " Tu hijo es  Un Marcion  ".  
He was torn. Which team should he pitch for them or me ?  

The dreams he had for his son... Broken.  Dreams that  will never  be ...
Because his son was infested with a  disease  called Transsexuality .

To Him I was cursed,...  For me it was Freedom...
At least I didn't rape you
by Caridad Moro-Gronlier

The wine we shared did it. You leaned in and offered me some killer advice

because we both turned to look at the brunette who passed our table on the way to
the bathroom—

Since you’re into chicks, you might as well think as if you had a dick.

You have the power of preemptive strike. Just follow her into the john,

wait until she leaves the stall, then push her against the wall. Take what you want.

Most guys won’t admit it, but if we had our way we’d knock you down,

spread your legs and plunge ourselves into what we want.

I consoled myself with all that could have been worse than discovering you were the
kind of man...
