Silvia Angulo is an anarcho-syndicalist proletarian feminist poet. Born in the Dominican Republic. Raised in New York. Silvia went to film school yet found herself cutting classes to attend rallies and Occupy Wall Street where she befriended street artists, leftists, and wrote too many protest poems. She ultimately did graduate with a BFA and moved to California to work in post production, but then quit the industry immediately. She presently works at a non-profit, is back in school for community justice, organizes with Af3irm National, and identifies as a transnational feminist, mujerista, and anarcho-syndicalist. Her writing has appeared in Feminist Wire, Bitch, Haggard & Halloo, La Galeria, Brasilia Review, and Fish Creek Press among others. Silvia received a BFA in Fine Arts and
Filmmaking at The City College of New York. She is also a part of Af3irm National and other community channeled collectives. Silvia is currently getting her degree in Paralegal Studies at Los Angeles City College, and hopes she can inspire women especially women of color to find and use their voice to combat injustice.
Lucha Tropical by Sarahe Roman.
The respectable face, has an air of concrete.
Somehow, the lassitude of a greater
Era pulls out the source of memory.
The wild water surges up, the desert covers
skin and hope and us. This black lung
of a man holds a woman losing
happier to be crunched.
