Original Sin

January 1995- Oil on canvas - 40 by 30 inches


I wouldn't miss joy if I'd never been
I wouldn't bear sorrow or tempt of sin
Maroon sky framed by leaf and tree-
A shade bluer for the rest to see
Though legal it taints me to this day
The act that molded me from clay
It makes me want to breathe the power
Free the straps and touch the flower
When I was five, too young to know
It made me clutch and smell her so
In dust and rock we broke the law
Innocent, evil and no one saw.
