  1. Beautiful poetic work that forces one to recall the many unspoken intimacies we share with our Familias and yes, many a DREAM- Fulfilled, but mostly not. Mr. Villar continues to add ACENTOS, if you will, to his status as a powerful, leading presence in the Nuyorican Poetry and Latino Literature circles. Thank you Futuro Media Group for your share and day-to-day efforts.
    Continued successes!
