Innocence (posted to Facebook on 5/29/08)

I see them strolling, engaged in their
chatter: with full
faces untouched by
the OmyGods of years,
smiles sincere and
filled with the hope of
allowances and new Christmas presents.
They have minds that know no clutter,
not distracted by thoughts of the
forbidden fruit the
Serpent sells, not aching to make
furtive love in a bed deemed invisible
by shadows. Their laughter causes dark
tears to slide from my weary
eyes; I miss the times when my only worry
was who would play with me at recess.
