Lost Innocence

Innocence
Has climbed
Out the window
Along with the age of
Long-limbed
Scrawny
Dove-chested
Childishness
Innocence
Stretched tight over ribs
Sternums
Collarbones strain
Smooth
Like a Native American drum
Tinkling laughter and
Sensitive tearducts
Snags
A stitch of clothing
On the windowsill
Goes toppling out
Quicker than I
Eyewitness
The girl with
Previously lost innocence
Expected it to fall
Chipped paint flies
Raining down on the still-pure
Than the blissfully ignorant
Who slumber below
Unanticipative
Of when their time
Will come
