Lobby #3


    Teolol
    Indigenous foreigner
    in american museum
    stares at janitors
    who remind him
    of aztec goddesses

    codices
    from guatemala
    on display
    in glass cases
    as children
    take snapshots
    of lost civilizations
    found in lobby #3

    the tour continues
    on the western wing
    where northern indian figurines
    of geronimo and pocahontas
    speak
    at the press of a button
    they tell their story
    of harmony and mother earth
    to adults in cotton
    "save the environment"
    t-shirts

    Teolol
    stands
    at odds
    amidst images
    displays and
    artifacts
    that remind him
    he's a foreigner
    in an american
    museum
    where he must
    pay the six-dollar
    entry fee to see
    his ancestors
    in lobby #3

    cisar a. cruz - teolol
