The Two Voice Poem: Mariano Padron & Lito.

In a two-voice or dialog poem, you create two characters and they carry on a conversation in a series of verses. These two speakers hold different perspectives and points of view on a certain situation. This time, instead of going for two different characters, you will be writing about the same one but in different moments in his life: -Mariano Padron when he, following orders, doesn't let Josef and the other refugees disembark in Cuba. -Lito when he decides to jump to the ocean and call the Coast Guards' attention to save his family. 1.
