About revolutions and hats -by Juan M.S.

About revolutions and hats

that change in fashion and color

and look well on us,

and our struggle to start

each day with a new emotion,

grabbing this or that one,

to parade it on our heads.

And my ever spanning

the gap between us with verses

that revolt and change color

and fashion and I wear them

each day and every time

that I feel alien to you,

and I’m more myself but you

read my verses and stifle

a revolution and a hat

pleases you and you snap it

from me and you wear it.
