National Poetry Month
By John Avalos Rios
I feel beauty in different languages
Beauty from their dynamic sounds
Beauty of proportions so great abound
Aztec/Zapotec, Purépecha I love
Alas, I find it difficult
To hear beauty in Sofia Vergara’s accent.
So sorry that I sound
Continue to perpetuate
The likes of cutesie silly accents
Since Ricky Ricardo came to town.
I apologize if offensive I may sound
