A Poem by Orlando G Gonzales III

From the collection "Al Front: Saldado Instrúyete vol.2”

The consumption of white roses
or the whispers inspiring applause 
defining his reasons for alluding to her tonight 
might seem lovely from the fire 
long admired from her side of the bed 
should this domain remain claimed by the mourning 
to (simply) appraise the fortunate ... 
... the dead
(while the breeze settles, 
then pretends the presence of feet 
represents the essence of failure 
felt beneath what remains of their sheets)
