I am xitlali

I Am Xitlali

By: Christian Barreda Huerta

and Gianfranco Fernandez Ruiz


I am xitlali

My Experience wore a loin cloth

And called itself Xitlali

It played the bagpipes

Before the war before the rain

It makes sugar skull candies to celebrate its dead

And works the rice terraces of Banaue

My experience eats that same rice

With sliced banana and fried egg

The yolk breaks and spills

Crimson, it declares:

“I am Maganda”

It repeats

“I am Saol”

It repeats

“I am Xitlalia and I wear a loin cloth”

My experience is to be seen

Untranslated, unclothed, unmistakable

Attempt to translate

The bagpipes will sound

Before the war. Before the rain.
