“A Race Barred,” poem by Roberto Tinoco Duran; “Trumperica” art by Erik Kaye


“Trumperica” watercolor by Erik Kaye, copyright 2017

A race barred
A look hard
A pulled
Pissed off
Race Card
A glass shard
A bad bard
A tongue lashing
A wound gashing
A Fascist state
A racist hate
A slur
A burr
A blur
Take us beyond

Bio: Roberto Tinoco Duran has performed and recited his poetry for over thirty years in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. As a featured poet he has taught poetry… from grades one to twelve, and at community colleges and universities throughout California.
In 1992 Duran was selected to participate in a major writer’s conference at Cornell University Ithaca, New York, with leading Latino authors and poets. His book “Triple Crown” was used in the course curriculum at Cornell.

Erik Kaye’s Real Autobiography: “I made a decision when I was in college that has defined my life. I decided not to pursue a career in Art until I first overcame a mysterious condition in my life that finally turned out to be Adult ADD. I thought I could just coast on secondary jobs, working in print shops and later, teaching English-as-a-Foreign-Language in Japan, until the inevitable completion of my real work, ADD-Busting. Which never came, at least not until now, that I’m in my 60s. But such is the way of art; painting is a solitary avocation that is as much about the transformative journey as it is about acquiring technical skill.”

  1. I always enjoy and learn from the deeply moving poetry of Roberto Tinoco Duran, a politically astute and morally insightful observer of the human condition.

    Trumperica, the accompanying art by Erik Kaye, expresses the true evil of Donald Trump.
