Elegy For Andres

The fat boy Andres has died
too heavy to be an Aztec angel

the cabron would drop out the sky like lead
and if he landed on you

well, bro, you’d be dead
or badly brain-damaged like me

son of a bitch knew
he would not outlive Omar

so he poured out his heart
in poem after poem

too sane to be a crazy gypsy
too crazy for this world gone mad
