Eve

dear Adam,

i eve was made from the bone of man      the flesh of You.

created to hold the weight of the sun and moon in my uterus,

 

to take the fall of humanity,

designed in the image of the earth goddess

 

with the energy of god        to will snakes and trees

and the movement of sheep

 

left to die, and all of the eves after,

but you will surely die too

 

the day i crushed the apple between my teeth

i felt the way in which the world would end

 

the planets will go to war

our mother will turn to dust

 

god will collect her and sprinkle her ashes along the milky-way.

i have discovered death.

 

his realm rests in the nook of time,

behold good and evil

 

the wrath of god made soup of your bones.

i swallowed my tongue,

 

you watched my lungs cave in grief,

stood there as i ate myself

 

Confess.   tell them who it was that got me to betray the lord.

i can no longer ignore the stench of madness.
