first bite of candied apple…

i remember carefree days
introduce themselves so politely on TV
“Hello Spanky,” “Hello Alfalfa,” “Hiya Buckwheat,”
bowing tipping their hats to us
then singing off-key
just as we did in church that summer
as fat Father O’Brien
new haloes darkening his hassock
kneeled and offered prayers to a blind G-D
candles burned to waxy tears
in that baroque whispered place
where peril and sweet conspiracy
combined as we stole money
from offerings – to buy candy
treats for altar boys
who like plump angels
floated down shadowed aisles
to know pleasures
ceremonies created in the mouth
could be as laughingly good as Alfalfa
somehow beating-out Mr. Butch
for beautiful Darla’s kisses of affection
none of us could ever imagine
the future betrayal of the priesthood
in ‘so-called’ unnatural acts
or our own juttings of soon-to-come sex
which to us could never be as blessedly sweet
as chocolate&caramel covered sticky lips from
‘Milky-Ways’ carrying us to sugared sins.
