“In the bathroom, I looked at my reflection in the mirror and made a face when I remembered one of Dad’s favorite jokes.

“‘You got your Mexican from your mom and your punk from me,’ he’d say.

“I had the Mexican going on for sure: brown skin and thick brown hair that was lighter than Mom’s but darker than Dad’s that I usually wore in two braids. I had Mom’s dark eyes too. My punk, on the other hand, was terribly lacking.”  (from The First Rule of Punk by Celia C. Pérez)

“‘Dreams get caught in the webs woven in your bones. That’s where they live. In that marrow there.’ … I imagined spiderwebs in my bones and turned my palms towards the moon, watching the ballet of bones between my elbow and wrist twist to make it so. I saw webs clotted with dreams like fat flies. I wondered if the horses I’d ridden into this dawn were still caught in there like bugs, winnying at the shift.” (from The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimalene)

“Nine quarters.

“They were the last of what had been left in the jar of laundry money that Dixie and I kept in our room, the jar that had never quite lost the smell of pickle relish. I counted and recounted the quarters in my pocket with my fingertips as the lunch line moved forward, as I’d counted and recounted them through English, physiology, and government. I counted because things in my life had a way of disappearing on me, and I’d learned not to trust what I thought was there.” (from Gem & Dixie by Sara Zarr)

“All Clayton wanted was a twelve-bar solo–not even the twice-around the block solo that the other Bluesman played. He wanted twelve bars and to be a true bluesman among bluesman. Didn’t Cool Papa tell the crowd earlier that the blues was more than a song, it was a story?” (from Clayton Byrd Goes Underground by Rita Williams-Garcia)
