Comfortable

Poem By Windsor Guadalupe Jr

Cozy inside my skin
Of fleets – lewdly guised
Beneath a veil of nonchalance.
I am such a great pretender
Among the stars that feign sparkles
In between lucid intervals and lapses.
I lust for a conversation
And I can feel your presence draw closer
And closer like the distance between
A sinister marauder’s finger behind
The boorish trigger of an espoused pistol.
I lust for amity
And there you were with your amenities
That equate to the infinitude of the evergreen pastures.

But then, I punctuated my statements,
And closed the lids of every entrance
To my porous body of cumbersome disgrace.
I am alone,
And I will never be alright
And that feels alright.
For I feel capable.
Capable of catching bodies
And send them into a straying reality.
I am able.
I am comfortable alone.
I could only listen to the clattering of my bones
As I walk this path
With only the stark wind to accompany me.

10: 19

It is the 8th year,
And the whirring gears clash
And croon the sounds of impending festivities
The clock spells 10: 19 in the evening,

The Rain Tolls

And the rain sounded like hail,
From the rooftops - a galvanized frailty
To whom does the rain toll?

At Night, I..

At night, I

Tether one lash to your eye,

Winter Pulp

The cadence of the wind striding
Resembles that of the restive exhaustion
Of the children wearing mittens
Beyond the Sun’s cold leash –

Again, Again, Again, Again, Again...

Some people are sodden
And redundant.
This is a mad carousel -
Mount each vessel

The Soldier's Wife

Slinging, with a gun that glinted with valor,
Oh the ineptitude in my face’s squalor
How she had wanted to become veiled;
With a soldier’s hand at the small of her back,
