THE POETRY COALITION MIGRATION POSTCARD PROJECT: BECAUSE WE COME FROM EVERYTHING
Postcard poem by Sarah Gambito
During the month of March, Kundiman fellows will participate in a Migration Postcard Poem Project called Because We Come From Everything: Poetry & Migration. Fellows will write and mail postcard poems highlighting the theme of migration.
Please join us by writing your own postcards and sending them out–– tweeting us @kundimanforever, using the hashtags #WeComeFromEverything and #PoetryCoalition. Email an image of your postcard to firstname.lastname@example.org–– we will be featuring select postcards on our Twitter, Facebook, and Fireside.
No somos nada y venimos de la nada pero esa nada lo es todo si la nutres de amor por eso venceremos
We are nothing and we come from nothing but that nothing is everything, if you feed it with love that is why we will triumph
We are everything hermana Because we come from everything
––Juan Felipe Herrera (from “Borderbus”)
