Hi, my name is Lupita Limón Corrales and I'm a poet living in Los Angeles and raised in the nearby San Gabriel Valley.

I wrote this poem after being hit by a car as a pedestrian in a crosswalk at a green light and reflecting on our built environment and the way that it prioritizes legality and order over safety and care.
