Innocence

Innocence

imagining 
ourselves
reborn
into innocence
absolved 
of all sin
the silly whims
of a bird
dreaming
of wingless
featherless flight
a fish
swimming upstream
without fins
or gills
or a cat
with neither claws
nor
tail
needing its stealth
its nimbleness
its fangs and claws
in order to hunt
in order
to survive
