Entre Malintzin, Doña Marina y la Malinche

Foreign Tongue

She witholds

the language

not the words

but the abandon

they evoke.

 

She refuses

bites her lip

to repel

el deseo

que quiere

estallar

por la boca.

 

Traidora

que soy

to discover

la fuerza

de la lengua

por los labios

of anothers

 

not hers.

Cherríe Moraga, The last generation (1993)
