Green and blue and yellow
radiates around my shell.
Cool warmth radiates from my skin.
Goodness and gentleness and kindness
orate from the tubes.
All is calm and well
yet within is indifference.
Evil me contained inside, why?
Once temptation now torturous desire.
The perennials of the sound garden wither,
while the annuals unwantingly thrive.
Even the evergreens of new cannot
overcome those well aged.
The conscious playground beckons
for the grown children to return.
Inside Henry and Mary still heard,
"come play and visit"
Need a garden strong with perennials.
Need to have Henry leave the playground.
Yellow and green must penetrate me.
Evil me seals my gut.
Evil wrapped with love
Is it in all?
