“We Were Innocents Then”

9 May

“We Were Innocents Then”

A kid took a trip aboard a ship

broad and strong, he grew

into all the trees

never ceased shaking a lovely headdress

we were innocents then

died with the blondes.

A spell took a sparrow swallow

through all swirls of oil waters

your digital walls

to pull through sailboats and tooth

and the day lobster’s sigh

the dry moon of afternoons

spray a devil wore

any ecstasy

without your throat coat

a cheetah’s perm

coated in miserable jams

and fresh squeezed

the green blood of crocodiles

trickling through the eaves

we’re innocents then

as now and ever were

a kiss of poison, a flower of pain:

I can’t wait to end to begin again:

we were innocents then.

Puzzled by a swollen poster

hung on your bedroom wall

a drawing: that is all

but fill would feed your feared friends

a bottle of rum could start to cry

the spells we won, the beasts

through bushes at last release

on bloodied knees again

we were innocents then.

We were innocence’s then

and under wounds were flowers

at least in undress

turned heads from centuries of rain

the soul’s will to begin again:

we were innocents then.
