6 times 6 = youth

we were young as we walked through...
 
the pearly golden gates
scratching our head
from the dandruff attack
that we breathed in
and choked –leaving
a breath behind
 
we were young as we walked through...
 
the memories of watching
our bodies being burned
and tortured in halo days
longing for the crumbs
under his feet, between the toes
a morsel to smell
 
we were young as we walked through...
 
the delicate tissues of issues
and gazed at our wondering
we lamented again and
sealing with the lips, glossing
concrete pouring, flossing
wrapping arms around– hugging
 
we were young as we walked through...
 
the decisions of the parents past
cursed be the day of his birth
wading in the pool, waiting for supper
that the stars shoot with the arrows
and prepare the noon meal
while driving to grandma house
 
we were young as we walked through...
 
a step in time when all was right
and good and proper - in order
for you to go to school, do thus and his
and cheating had the right answer
falling into rhythm of the letters and points
did i get enough credit for life
 
we were young as we walked through...
 
the door that swung both ways
crossing the tracks as the train goes by
the trail had no tails - at the end
for we even tried fried hen
we really didn’t want to lie
as we walked through eating pie
