revolution summer

one sat there bored
waiting to die
with cigarette
in tow

what flower
awaits you
near core

feel my spring
melissa knows that she's wanted
and other friends are far away
hatching as lost as the last

there are many here among us
holding a virgin thing
in our very hands
inflamed juggling

see this
know you know
toss the test nitroglycerin pray
begin again tear this mouth wide open
