    ONCE A CHILD

    I was a child once
    Full of breath
    Full of claim
    Clay under fingernail
    Driveway on fire
    A stone’s throw away
    Red Ford door wide open
    We all used to play
    Earthworms are pleasure
    Existence is born
    Beside or top of the pave
    And the flame won’t conceal us
    Ignorant or chance
    But molestation is a coating
    Same as butter is a flavor
    Film is to the eye
    Skins of onions like years
    I am dying soon, pray
    Infliction added to a city sidewalk
    And all you fake f***ers
    Keep spilling your sperm
    If there were any words to cement
    I wouldn’t care
    I’ve lived a thousand life times
    In a single nighttime
    With the stroke of a pen
    We can dissolve into childhood
    Or we can dissolve into extinction
    It doesn’t take a genius to figure out
    How to leave this earth
    It doesn’t take a genius to figure out
    How to be a child
    But it will take both
    To survive the lies of Satan

        Very interesting poem. Has me thinking to try to understand it all, which is a good thing. What do you mean by these lines?

        "With the stroke of a pen
        We can dissolve into childhood
        Or we can dissolve into extinction"

          in our writing we can become oblivious as a child or we can pretend to be extinct thank you
