Eve’s moment

Oh I think Eve knew exactly what she was doing.

When invited by a serpentine mistress

of the art of death and rebirth,

when beckoned

by the irresistible force of life

to richly partake of a fruit of fertility

from the tree of everything.

I imagine Eve jumped at the chance.

Wouldn’t you?

Life in the garden was doubtlessly pleasant.

Days well ordered,

and nights? Well, quiet.

But the rogue strand of riotousness

in Eve’s spiralling DNA

wouldn’t have it that way for long.

Oh poor Adam, asleep and unsuspecting!

One for a quiet life, he.

Dragged into wakefulness,

never to sleep again.

Never in quite the same way.

Oh the glorious Dance that unloosed

from one tender bite,

from one moment!
