  1. Hi Poets! I’m a Toronto-based new media artist and documentary filmmaker. In March, I will be traveling to San Juan to shoot a short doc on the life of Pedro Albizu Campos by interviewing some of his family members. I will also in be NYC between Xmas and NYE to interview poets with active ties to PR to draw parallels between social activism, anti-imperialism narratives through the spoken word. If you are interested to be part of this project as a featured poet, please email me at maz@maziart.ca. We’d love to interview you!

    Tu no te Iras.
    Te quedaras siempre.
    Tu no te iras.
    Te quedaras en todo lo Amado.
    Tu no te iras.
    Te quedaras en la tierra de vida.
    Tu no te iras.
    Te quedaras en mi Silencioso abierto.
