The Biography of Catalina Ferro

Catalina B. Ferro is new.
But not the shiny kind of new;
The rough and clumsy kind of new.
Brunette, brown eyes, 147 pounds.
Moderate to large nose.
Aries but wishes she was a Virgo.
Dragon but wishes she was a Dog.
She has been a member of New York City's 2009 and 2011
Group therapy groups
And was awarded the titles of "Worst Attitude" (2009)
And "Miss Congeniality" (2011).
She is a member of the 2012 LouderARTS Slam Team,
Which she hopes will be kind of the same thing.
In 2008 she lost all capacity for fiction
In a freak accident;
This means that her poetry is autobiographical,
Which is pretty sad, considering her poetry,
But hey, what can you do?
Lemons and lemonade, right?
She fears giant chicken-eating spiders
And silence most of all.
She probably didn't sleep last night,
She probably wants to be your friend.
