“El Abuelo” is an intimate portrait of
local educator and poet, Joe Jimenez. Of all domestic
chores, ironing is the only one a “homeboy”
is more than happy to master, reaching an appearance
of perfection; perfect creases work hand in hand with
the power of attraction. In voiceover, Joe reads the
lines from his poem “El Abuelo,” as we
learn the potency these perfect creases possess in
capturing the attention of his “first vato”
– his first love of another man.
