teves's "Here," Rosario and Aurora Levins Morales transfigure the "I" of the poem into a collective "we" and conclude: "And we are whole" (213).
Dislodged from the immediate experience of immigration, the term "migration" gradually evolves into a metaphor that describes explorations into sexuality, feminism, and the dynamic nature of identity. Not only does the term "migration" become referentially more diverse, but so does the geographic location of later Nuyorican writers. No longer centrally located in New York and affiliated with the Nuyorican Poets' Cafe, recent writers like Judith Ortiz Cofer and Aurora Levins Morales write from Georgia and California, respectively. With this ongoing, diasporic quality to Nuyorican literature, Puerto Rican writers in the United States will continue to complicate, challenge, and revise notions of identity, family, and community. Beginning with depictions of New York's colonias, Nuyorican literature will still show the multicultural, palimpsestic quality of the Puerto Rican immigrant experience, an experience that cannot be isolated from other immigrant groups nor understood solely as a discrete and self-contained culture.
