Replicas

The innocence of children
comes pure with rosy cheeks,
blue eyes—wide-open—smiles
that gain entrance to heaven.

Don’t suffer the little children,
I’ve read. But what happened to Cain?
His sibling twin, Abel, shared
the same womb (not the same father).

Did the blue-eyed Boys from Brazil
come from Cain? They beckon
with Arian purity, with same ruddy
complexion and perfectly replicated

smiles that lull you all the way to hell.
What kind of mutation compromised
that sinlessness? Have we evolved
from sacrificial innocence

or did we come from cloned hatred?
