poem : lilith & adam (in the absence of eve)

here they lie, in the place beyond all others /
absent sky, tears red / her fingers carving grooves into
his ribcage ; telling him that
this is penance – the righteous end /
truth within Eden / pain clothed in paradise, trussed up in divinity’s silks /
steel tongues & heady words
slipping across sheets of muscle. all is quiet sin, riotous blood / revolution unfolding between the touch of their skin ;
words unholy
and unbroken,
murmured among the leaves of an ever-growing tree, ever-lovely, dark, damned
and evergreen.
