Paradise Refused

I saw two young people wandering rich gray streets
Comely, well-fashioned with boredom in their hearts.
They met each other and had some empty chat
Before making love. Then, realizing they were naked,
They stitched together fig leaves into masks
To cover up their faces. By common agreement
They went their separate ways to hide, for he
Had heard the voice of God, calling from her sky blue eyes.
