Mama Sappho
MAMA SAPPHO: Poems de Sabor a Caló, is a collection of poetry written during the 1970s by a X(x)icanX(x) lesbiana Osa-T. Osa Hidalgo de la Riva-, between the ages of her teen years and early twenties. Originally, the manuscript was entitled WITH POEMS as GUNS, and was performed on tour with her lesbiana poet sister Liz at some of the first battered women's shelters, women's cafés and bookstores throughout Aztlán, the U.S. Southwest. After their tour, both sisters completed their Bachelor of Arts Degrees in Psychology, and Dr. Osa Bear went on to complete her first (of three) Master of Arts Degree with this collection as her written creative master's thesis in May 1980. Published in book form 38 years later, MAMA SAPPHO includes also the author's Poetic Afterword, an essay that reads as fierce manifesto. A truly timeless-or time-expansive-collection, MAMA SAPPHO could have read as contemporary poetry in any of the four decades it has traversed since taking its thesis form, and will surely read as such in the four decades to come.
