clean slate

Clean slate

Not to know anything
And start again

Forget all about past lives,
About Shakespeare and Pinochet
About frantic running in the crowd
Choking with tear gas,
About teachers, parents and guardians
First unrequited loves and first school dances
Beatles songs and shouting matches into the night
And walking alone in the dark seedy nights of the city centre
Peering into the doorways lit in red

Oh, to forget everything
Make a clean slate
And start again
