"When you play God, you get screwed."


Waiting for someone to pick you
You are waiting for someone to change your life
No longer wanting to rise with the tortilla star

You are beautiful
Like a falling star
You are dressed in velvet high-heels
Eyes painted like Cleopatra
Waiting under the street lights for someone
Someone to pick you, someone to change your life

Someone will pick you
A marshmallow salesman or a no name
You will take him all the same

But he won’t change your life

You belong to Mango Street
You will always belong to Mango Street
You can’t escape


The author's comments:
This poem was inspired by the memoir House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros
