Sephardic Nose

Who’s this boy with
Perfect teeth and
Sephardic nose?

The Jesuit padres
who ran
the Liceo, were
all from
Spain.

These are secrets of
generations past.

My peers had no clue,
how could they?

These things were
never discussed.

“Ha, ha
You have a
Jewish nose”

“Nariz de judío tienes,
Muchacho”

“¿De dónde vienes?”

Where do
we come from?

Where?

The Spanish Jesuits
knew and know;
our history is
intertwined,

like a well knit
quilt that had
been secretly
hidden.

¿No sabes que soy
de Sefarad?
