Stay A While

Poem By Windsor Guadalupe Jr

Stay a while
The secrets
Are too bold
And besides,
The stars aren't
Ours to hold
So stay a while.

Let them wait
We have each

Trickle of sunshine
Hanging from
Our lips
Like lackadaisical
Flowers from
Tilted gardens
A thousand-mile
Tether,
Stay a while.

Stay a while
The twilight
Carries
A metamorphosed
Equinox painted
All across
The firmaments
If my heart shivers
To the gnawing cold
I will still
Utter the phrases
That long to cut
Your lips even
If mine freezes
In a fatal austerity.

So stay a while
We might leave
Soon in trains
Or die underneath
The mad rain
So stay a while.

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,
