Poem: For Hugo Chavez

El Entusiasmo Nuevo
mourns the passing
of the comandante
of its Caracas chapter.

He entered electoral politics
after a failed coup.
With cancer he mounts
a successful coup
on chronological time.

“Death can be proud or not.
I refuse to live without joy
and solidarity with the poor.”

—John Donne
