La disculpa no es un regalo propio para

celebrar tú cumpleaños

Primero fue el envio, que nunca fue enviado

y despues

La cena, a cual no tengo disculpa

por no ir

Pero no todo es pérdida

Hice tiempo para el postre

Cón la nariz

llena de primavera

de fresas y hierbabuena

Y los oidos llenos

de tus risas

Y mis ojós llenos

de tú perfil

Como si el cumpleaños fuera mío

It is written in prose it’s fast paced and frenetic. This is the birth of the Beat Generation with it’s new language of Jazz and Be-Bop meant for Cool Cats and Hipsters.

It is the language of the sidewalk poet, improvised and imperfect.

a white t-shirt,

smoking Chesterfields

take my picture…

or at least ask

me is i was a poet

like Jack Kerouac
