Three Places, One Heart
Babylon Street Elementary short stories
Attempting to fit his square-ness into the round of everyday life as a teacher, Tony Villalobos can?t help but misplace his heart and lose his güey in something as polyglot and cosmically mestizo as a Los Angeles elementary school. Trying to sort out all the history, poetry, and pornography that convene in a Babylon Elementary classroom takes a toll but offers a few curious cuentos.
The Mexica ?spelled? Tenochtitlan as a glyph of a nopal cactus coming up out of a stone, making the name look like Mesoamerican Ikebana. With the privilege of an alphabet and the two giant flower shops of English and Spanish, composing flower-song out of the languages allows for the wild arrangement of lily words and oraciones de orquídeas.
Ysteléi Ese · East LA essay
An essay from an eastsider born on the eastside of El Éi.
L'autore: Richard Villegas Jr. is a 1974 Ystelei cabernet aged for three decades in the California oak-lined basin of the mega-pueblo L.A.-titlan. Belvedere Elementary, Our Lady of Lourdes, Bosco Tech, UCLA, and USC were the institutions. T-parties, Tempo, and Tuesdays at a club formerly known as Woody?s were the situations. Villegas loves walks on the beach, Free Cuba! drinks, his Smurf village app, banda (Serbian or Mexican) and purposefully mixing the sacred with the profane. He labors on a novel and works to ultimately free himself of an indentured servitude administered concurrently by LAUSD and, la cabrona, Ms. Salliemae.
