The pennycandystore beyond the El

is where i firstfell in lovewith unreality

Jellybeans glowed in the semi-gloom

of that september afternoon

A cat upon the counter moved amongthe licorice sticksand tootsie rollsand Oh Boy GumOutside the leaves were falling as they diedA wind had blown away the sunA girl ran in

Her hair was rainy

Her breasts were breathless in the little roomOutside the leaves were fallingand they criedToo soon! too soon!

.: Pedophelia :.

One of many possible interpretations to this poem is as follows. First establish a speaker/perspective for the poem as a man, the store clerk for instance. Next understand the word "unreality" as "fantasy" i sexual. The line,"Her breasts were breathless in the little room" also must be first noted. Finally the last line,"Too soon! Too soon!"

With these ideas understood the poem becomes a glance into the pedophile mind. To fall in love with fantasy, i the scene he then describes, sets a disturbing mood to the poem. The line about the girl is clearly sexualized in comparison to the rest of the poem, and again this breaks any sense of normalcy, or innocence in the poem. The last line may be interpreted in a few ways within this interpretation. The leaves may be crying out in warning/chastisement of the event that is about to take place or the leaves may serve as the man's conscience reminding him, too soon, or too young, representing the man's knowledge of the moral wrongness of his fantasy.
In short the poem may be interpreted as a man dreaming of/reminiscing over his past experiences that sparked his interest in young girls.
