Bones - Poem by Windsor Guadalupe Jr

When I go
To cemeteries
I wonder
What the bones
Underneath the
Silent grounds
Are doing.

And in
Somber nights,
I think about them
Sometimes rattling,
Often times breathing
But still to me,
They are dead.

In another plane
Of ridiculous marvels,
I wonder
Over the tombs,
The lulled requiems
And the clandestine

Are the bones
What I am
Doing above them,
And breathing?
