persimmon

Persimmon

I had my fill of lazy afternoons

of forbidden fruit

plucked off the poisoned vine

I listened to the devil softly croon

songs uncouth

sending shivers down my spine

I lost my innocence too soon

like a milk tooth

in sweet persimmon wine

I’ll dig your grave with teaspoons

as your half truths

dug mine
