The poems I will be reciting tell stories about immigrants, displaced and marginalized, in New Orleans, Spain and France. These poems are a display of mixed emotion, loneliness, and marginalization felt by migrants with a sense of belonging to a host land or to their native cultures. While marking contrasts between immigrants' dreams and the harsh realities where they find themselves, these poems are written in the spirit of solidarity with women’s conditions, immigration, and minority populations in the hope to make the world a better place for all.
