Radio Poets 2018: Santos Dzib, "My Color Brown"

Santos Dzib is a student at Sanchez Elementary School

 My Color: Brown

By Santos Dzib, Sanchez Elementary School


Brown feels like a sugary chocolate cake melting in your mouth. 

Brown smells like wet mud after it rains. 

Brown looks like the Mayan pyramids of my ancestors. 

Brown sounds like a mad growling bear trying to protect its habitat. 

Brown tastes like the warm mole my mom cooks.

(music: People's Republic by Dem Juju Poets)
