Alabanza: In Praise of Local 100
by Martín Espada

for the 43 members of Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees Local 100,
working at the Windows on the World restaurant, who lost their lives in
the attack on the World Trade Center


Alabanza. Praise the cook with the shaven head
Eeeeee! One of my poems (this one) got selected to be published in the on-campus literary magazine, The Sandy River Review, for the Spring '06 issue, and those bitches are elitist (sometimes to a fault, and they certainly have other flaws as well), but nonetheless, I'm pretty ecstatic!

This conversation with Jay about said selection made me feel WICKED warm & fuzzy )
