Felipe Aguilar

 

Who was Felipe Aguilar

When he lived his last address

Was the county jail

When he died his last address

Was the county hospital

 

We can not classify absurdities

Anymore than we can classify certainties

To speak of Felipe Aguilar

Is almost senseless

A hopelessness inherent in language

 

For Felipe Aguilar

Lies somewhere between

Imagination and bewilderment

And we touch the

Mystery and miraculousness of life

For Felipe Aguilar the ceremony

Of his life is as incoherent

As a feather

Changing direction in the wind.

One thought on “Felipe Aguilar

  1. sad. Poor Felipe. But to some extent, we are all a flock of feathers going every which way. No plan…just ending up where we are…Felipe’s was just a much bleaker outcome. Did you know him?
