Childishness

Good seasons must flow unabated
Fashioning evil, silver sons
Growing wild among the locks of David
Who’s making his move to the stage beyond

Fortified finger with platinum shielding
Makes me stronger, better, and more brilliant
Tightrope walking with occasional lightning
Best, they say, to keep your eyes up front

I’m too old for this
Luxuriant pleasure without limits
And I’ll commit
To push away all that’s childishness

Now that we’ve been materially bonded
Winter won’t be my last resort
To shake it, break it, and be generally sordid
Like pleasure could last forevermore.

Buried my past ‘neath some flaming leaves
And pounced with both feet into the pile
They ricocheted like two squirrels on speed
and tossed my loafers for over a mile

I’m too old for this
Delirious party without limits
I’ll wreck myself
To push away all that’s childishness

I remember laughing and dancing
With children of up to eighty years
Echoes that replicate a new beginning
To that blessed time of smiles and tears

Wide eyes stare up at nothing but grown up
We see our milk teeth, little feet, binky boo
Let it be that we’ve lived enough
To fly away with a good question or two

Too old for this (but not by much)
Deliriously living without limits
And I’ll commit
A push away from more childish
