Adale (Stephen's Priorities)

Adale (Stephen's Priorities)

A Poem by Orlando G Gonzales III

From the collection "Saldado Instrúyete"

His priorities may linger
to prevent sentiment derived from the evolved precedent …
… my loss
and two more months of redemption simulating theatre
secured as a place I need not reside
as I honor my latest review
of the life last presented as
“a presense too appealing for other men”

His priorities,
partially founded in pain
nearly made me out to be the enemy …
… an enemy ceding what couldn’t simply be (my dearest memory) …
… so, an enemy I’ll be,
running to initiate curtsies from the other girls
reminiscent of what was once considered to be
“remarkably me”
