from the ghetto-street plantation
We were tender to the touch
thanksgiving in the making
giving all we had
and taking just as much
calling out our names
only twenty for the night
and we made ourselves available.
Estanislao (Stan) Rodriguez-Cuevas is an artist.
Born on August 1, 1945, in Puerto Rico by God’s design.
A lover of life by my desire and an artist by trade.
I have enjoyed my days—the good and bad both equally
for we must live both…to understand and appreciate the other.
