To Gwen, With Love, But I Don't Dig It


TO Gwen, with love, but I don't dig it

love your style, love your make-up, love your platinum hair.

I dig

from '50s retro to ghetto kool

gothic lettering

I dig

Saw you at Billboard awards

See you are channeling Frida Kahlo.

I dig.

However I must object

To one of your latest fashion styles

A faux pas

On your video I see

THE CHOLO/CHOLA look

Three MI VIDA LOCA dot tatoos on your eye

Not digging it

Not kool

WHY?

A Cholo killed my brother.

My brother, my 22-year-old brother Ari

A Cholo shot and killed him

For no reason

On a Sunday Morning (MAY 2, 2004)

It came without any warning

I thought I'd let you know

And you are dressing like one

Because it's kool?

Not digging it

You are a role model

A cholo- not a role model

Don't represent a killer

Not trying to boycott yo shhhhhh**

'Cause that be b-a-n-a-n-a-s

But MY mother doesn't dig

She cries

She cries 'till she can't cry no more

Sometimes I cry

Sometimes my lil' sis, tio, tia, primo cry

My abuelita, she cries too

Don't rep a drug dealer

Because you are GWEN

LOVE

ANGEL

MUSIC

BABY

That's what you are

Living luxuriously

Not digging the chola look

Hope ya' dig?

'Cause I know we're cool

A fan,

Susana Sanchez
