el mundo secreto de la castigada

Soy la castigada. I pray for deliverance in the last pew of the emptied church, my palms shaking with remembered concupiscence. The rest of the time, I wait tables at a greasy spoon. I am dueña of the downcast face, the visage los hombres know but cannot quite place. Don't order the pie.

My favorite music:

Juanita Reina
