Existing In Absurdity

Born linked to the ancient ones
Channeled to a past spirit
Licking insight of the now
Instinctively being observant
Creating a discrete perception

Accepting things as they are
Not to question why
In a world of the ordinary
While seeking answers
Only to redefine normality

Follower of mother’s guidance
Learning right from wrong
In an air of tolerance
Avoiding strange charmers
Delivers of woe and fear

Fostering a mama’s boy
Not by design, but by nature
Existing forever connected
To her very being
Desiring to mend her hurt

Nurtured in grandmother’s church
Hearing a calling without voices
Imparting salvation
Becoming blinded by faith
Only to be baptized in a tank

Receiving life’s real baptism
In the old swimming hole
Swinging from a rope
Sinking down with an arm
Pointing up to the light above

A curiosity for girls
Given timid tutelage
Knowing only of
Their exclusive nature
Without objective scrutiny

Lacking any evidence
Querying a gentle lass
Show me yours
Will show you mine
Not yet understanding
The growth in the hand

Lying down by her side
Lost in original sin
Not resisting the call
Buried deep in the heart
Falling for her desire

Thinking of girl as woman
Wondering at what age
A woman becomes woman
And when woman
Stops being woman

Fancied by little girls
Fashioned by big girls
Becoming powerful as consort
Only to be lost in false piety
A spectacle of elevated humbug

The girl as woman
A myth dreamed by boys
Loving the art of deception
Conceived by man loving woman
Only to become a ploy

Now questing a cure
For this curse of eve
Loathing the deception
In quest of a solution
Only to be lost in dark air

Searching a way out
Of this affliction
Can’t live with
Can’t live without
Existing in absurdity
