Poema: Una noche de recuerdos, prom.

Hagan caso en ese día, 12 de abril. Como la historia de una princesa, la cenicienta. Cuando el reloj dio a las doce, ella sabía que debía irse. Largo, color pastel, y abierto por detrás, Un vestido que cualquier muchacha sería feliz de lucir. Tan feliz como una niña de diez anos Si solamente pudiera detener el tiempo para que pueda ser testiga de todos sonriendo, con tanta emoción y felicidad. A bailar con sus pareja, A escuchar la música, A tener el olor de perfume, y tener los recuerdos de un baile, un baile al que no puedes regresar,…

Poema: Una Pesadilla Chistosa

Entre las narices de los alumnos, En la clase, después del almuerzo, Un niño se tiro un pedo, ¡Todos lo olieron, nadie lo escucho, pero dijo que no comió mucho! Durante treinta minutos, Estudiantes se pusieron locos, ¡El maestra se cayo, y se le salieron los mocos! El rostro de él se puso morado, su corazón parro, en la clase había entrado un tornado, la clase se habia burlado, y ahora no podían mirar claro Pero todo era un sueño, talvez una pesadilla, hoy no era su día perfecto, tal vez mañana será correcto.

Twerk has its roots in traditional West African dances, in particular, mapouka, which comes from the Republic of Cote d’Ivoire. There are two sorts of mapouka: a more civilized, traditional type used in ceremonies, and a more scandalous, popular type that lies more closely to our…
