ADAM and EVE and ALIENS/ Poetry Picnic Week #1


FIRST I GOT SHUT OUT of Jingle, poem already done...what to do?  Then I got an invite to join the new Gooseberrygoespoetic Blog.  This is good, because poem seemed about to languish.  Thanks one and all (Jingle, of course!). 
Will not be able to comment for next couple of days because of necessary surgery...shhhh...but will try to catch up.  And, fingers crossed, please!


ADAM and EVE and ALIENS

This orb of trees
and blue seas
will be planted
with miracles
from this day forward.

A book will tell the legend.
Pull Eve from his rib now,
let her kiss the bleed
as if she could ever
heal the pain of Adam's desire.

All will bear the scar.
The secrecy of a bitten apple,
will create a yawning wound
as snakes contrive
illusions of fulfillment.

So like the other worlds
where androids reign.
