Motorcyle Rides

Cheers to the greatest love story never told

The Gringa and Rubirosa

The Nuyorquina and her Campesino

The spark that would exist between ‘el cruze’ and the Southside of Brooklyn

It was disaster and perfection all at the same time

Just like, summa’ sweat on a Christmas night

With the smell of Brugal Extra Viejo, sex and cheap cologne

Old school boom boxes, blastin’ to the beat of merengue, bachata and regueton

They danced

And they fucked

Later loved

Her first time, his lost count

Her heart broken, his heart stolen

Olleme loco, I had esa tipa at hello

She was ratata, mortal un mujeron

And I, como todo un caballero, un Casanova, tenia que meterle mano

Mire mi hermano

Meeting her took me this cerquinininga to getting my Dominican ass to Nueva Yol’

Diablo manin’, el sueno Americano, tu te imagina?

No more Platano, Salami and Longaniza for Breakfast lunch and dinner

Y e’ facil? huumm

Kentooky friii chicken pa’ ti y pa’ mi

Tu sabe que?

Those palomo from el otro lao’ don’t know how to treat a woman

Dique sending cards and flowers… who does that shit?

No! No! No! No!

This is how a mayimbe, un matatan like me treats a woman

Numero 1: Give her pilaaaa e’ cotorra

Numero 2: Dedicate a Jose Jose song to her

And Numero 3: Tell her “Diablo mami, yo te I love you… tu hace que mi corazoncito haga tuki

tuki tun”

Diale loco, she almost believed me… casi

Que se yo… esa tiguera started reading Che Guevara… women’s liberation

Saying she did not want to end up like her tias and her abuelas

I told her “Mira Ana, no one, nadie, OISTE, is gonna make you feel, the way you feel when

you’re with me”

And all she said was “Aiiiii Salad”

She’d call me that because my name is Cesar

“Hazme el favor!”

But her ass did take it literally and she wanted to see que habia en el menu

Anabelle Gonzalez and I am a 31 year old Dominican American Poet/Writer. I used to be a passionate spoken word artist however took a hiatus for several years until I realized recently that my work was meant to be read and not heard. I feel there is way more beauty when readers have the freedom to their own interpretation. Hope you enjoy my work!
