Lingering Doubts

Lingering Doubts

Up and Adam slouching dazed
to stinging urination urgent bliss,
Brush the ivories, coax the curls,
welcome back to the worldly whirl;
Eleven bells a new day dawning?
half tasted already shot while sunning
But determined creeps on its busy rampage
through obstacles cropping
even while they're dropping
and hitting the ground in useless thuds ....
Meeting yourself going in
coming out of a fast food restaurant,
Spending time more precious than money
doing nothing but having doubt
Lingering about like a pretty girl
tempting you with her come here there,
then skipping away faster
than beautiful boyfriends
hurtling into bed with fire hydrants
bursting at the marrow...

When the last thuds echo
wonders away aimless up the clapping also,
You've wasted your whole day
tilting at necessity,
And finally you're freer
than an astonished professor
To attend the luxuries are necessities,
your lingering doubts about life
love and women and ....
Don't mention that!
If guilt is affection for sin,
then Adam, you're in trouble!
