In what seemed a time interminable
This is how the world ‘beginned’.
Let it describe it –
Had the start and no sin.
If you stumble around darkness,
It can be quite harmless.
In tints of Eden, sketches,
We was completely liquid.
Shadows but happier
Completely innocent. We was.
We hadn’t learnt to spell or think.
To be precise we ‘knowed’ nothing.
Hadn’t put pen to ink
Or even tried to.
Me and Me in conversation.
A big bang,
Quite a picnic.
And what of the budded stem? Gravity?
All things to all them.
Until the sun cames up
And everything was bright.
Even the restroom but not quite, not quite.
And all the loving I could ever have
In one night
Came from the California light.
