So, Good Night - Poem by Windsor Guadalupe Jr

The stars scintillate
In their excitatory states
And the moon lunges with
Stale escapism.

It’s as if I am left
With an abundance of
Night lights that shed
No luminescence on
My darkened paths.

If only I could blow
These candles one by one
So they’d die out,
Leaving me with the austere
Kiss of the midnight delusion,
I would.
Or at least,
If I could hide their efflorescence
And keep it in my pocket
So that when the night
Swathes the roads
With murk
And desolation,
I come armed -
Armed enough
To disarm, what disarms me.

But tonight,
Just like any other nights
Envisage
At the marred vistas
And obstinate springs of hope,
This is just one of those
Nights of undulation -
To ripple
From life
And death.

So tonight,
I will extinguish the flames
Of doubt,
Of desertion,
Of rue
With sleep.

So good night.
