bi_janus Posted May 8, 2012 Report Share Posted May 8, 2012 Conversion of the Innocents Bi Janus For John, who at least died unashamed The enervation of the Sacred does not follow from a man loving a man. Shhh! So little time you had in sunlight, most in the shadow of a father’s unkindness. I thought together we would give you relief, but, no, only brief joy overcome by your tears while my heart vibrated between our baptismal trysts. Rather, the impulse precedes shame, until Fathers strike it cold, when a boy loves a boy. Johnno, you thinking my walls passing strange, as from them, surfer boys and Ursula stared, while the eyes from yours, watching us cavort, were above the thorn-wreathed Sacred Heart of Jesus. You were the one abashed when I took your hand on the street, and you never quite believed, even after we mixed it up with that fine young girl. No Holy Writ instructs human love, alas excepting Solomon, but we might find the way if tentative embrace is not decried by shame. Quote Link to comment
