Jesus Loves Poems

Mellow Yellow Redux

I remember the radio was playing love. The story was only beginning and Jesus was still a character. His lines were written by the one Frank Capra and spoken with the clarity of Shane. They were lines the world would kill for.

We gathered by the river and listened to the strains of Sunshine Superman. It was the summer of love and we were too young to mix it up with sex and drugs. We tried but we were young. Instead we listened to the words and believed them to our legs.

The word was out. They made a satellite and circled it around the earth with tin foil. Producers made a stage and sound directors set the microphones and someone beamed a camera on some actors singing all you need is love. The world went far out.

That was then and this is now and everything that’s passed has just confirmed the all that we were singing then. Myself, I know that I’d be somewhere deep in space except the fact a child is father to the man. Because it’s life itself that saves.
