Purpose / Proposito

Do I feel guilty?
I would say no.
I watched a tuberose
disappear in my time,
without the cravings
of this infinite labyrinth,
staring off
apathetic and lilting,
lost within myself
amongst gradual shadows,
lettering, period.

Am I alive?
I would argue accurate.
Condescending to the touch
of the cosmic whistle,
dreaming decrees of change
crossroads and voices,
declining time
on a floating feather
away from adolescence,
and consequently,
I am witness and purpose!

¿Me siento culpable?
Yo diría que no.
Miré un nardo
desaparecer en mi tiempo,
sin los anhelos
de este laberinto infinito,
con la mirada perdida
apático y cadencioso
extraviado en mi mismo
entre sombras paulatinas,
letras y punto.

¿Me siento vivo?
Yo diría exacto.
Condescendiente al tacto
del silbido cósmico,
Soñando decretos de cambio
encrucijadas y voces,
declinando al tiempo
en una pluma que flota
lejos de la adolescencia
y en consecuencia
soy testigo y propósito.
