X is for "The X in My Name"

We're coming in to the homestrech of the A-Z Blogging Challenge and it's time for one of the most difficult letters of the alphabet...that pesky X.  Here's my solution:

The X in My Name (1993)
the poor
signature
of my illiterate
and peasant
self
giving away
all rights
in a deceiving
contract for life

Francisco X. Alarcon...brilliant.
An interview with Fransisco X. Alarcon for Colorin Colorado where he discusses
his cultural heritage and how it shaped his poetry.  It's long, but good.

TGIF fellow A-Zers...remember whe that was good television?!
