Commemoration I: Southern France, Age of Accountability

Lavender, purple oasis      
beyond golden wheat      
of a Promised Land      
Mediterranean azure      
lining the Province    
of St Paul de Vence    
Life-Friends flower wildly    
burgeoning adolescence    
amid fruit-laden branches      
The twisted Apple      
its arthritic stem, fluffy      
blossom in their hands    
Young chins harvest      
dripping to insects. . .    
wormy scavengers    
He a boy, barely man    
nobley helping her    
from the tree    
Became no match    
for the fallen blouse    
beneath her nippled breast      
Accountability, coming    
of age, how it altered    
their dynamics of play      
What was Youth beneath      
their skin, bled maiden    
and manhood that day      
Virginity, precious pome    
freely gifted to each    
young tongue    
Marked a Beginning      
ingrained even today    
within their Memory      
Painting Marc Chagall
For my Bestie
