“Letter to the Child Never Coming”.

Just published


Dear Reader,

Just a quick note that my latest piece, an essay called “Letter to the Child Never Coming”, has been published by Queen Mobs Teahouse!

Essay post


I’m excited that this piece has been published. I’ve read this piece for the 18th anniversary of Nuestra Palabra two years ago, but hadn’t published it. When my friend and editor, Jasminne Mendez, asked for pieces, I looked to see what I had and this popped up. And thus this essay is out for the world to see.

Incidentally, it’s also part of my memoir. That’s, yes, still in progress. And ironically closer to being done than Jennie Manning if you can believe that!

Enjoy the read!

  1. Icess, I just read this and as I said on Queen Mobs, this is so powerful. I love how boldly you put your heart on the page. It is truly an authentic and beautiful piece.

    Peace and love, my friend.
