the trial of the innocent

face it
abstraction was inevitable

innocence hungers for knowing
it never knows why it hungers
never knows how it hungers
it can only know that it hungers

gentle teachers
angels and demons
reality can be so complex
so full of imaginary and real numbers

no matter how this comes out
you will never be innocent again

oh
you’ll be hungry
in whole new ways
but learn the lesson

wisdom can never be given
it can only be taught
