Poems and True Stories-- June in Oktoberland

Under a Plum Tree

I'll be innocent, for you

If you force me to

If you'll prey on

My guardian angels

If you make them cry and hide their eyes

Slapping Prudence and Hindsight

With bold hand and grim smile

I'll spill the crouching cadence

Of adult analysis

To dream in clay

Or Kool-Aid colors

Waking with questions

You won't see coming
