El Proyecto de Dia de Los Muertos y la Calavera
What is a Calavera?
A calavera s a traditional poem that is read and made on the Day of the Dead in Spanish culture. It celebrates the idea of the dead. It usually jokes about a certain individual and their "death".
What were you trying to portray?
In my Calavera, I made fun of my friend Sailor. In the poem, she plays her music, which is so bad that her "fans" kill her by throw tomatoes at her. Obviously, she is not a bad musician and is still alive!
In my obituary, I wrote about my uncle. He had recently passed away before I wrote the obituary. During the writing of it, I tried to achieve a connection with more of my family members.
