[Adam poem - Adam leaves Eden poem]


Eden is boring.
Nothing explodes.
There are no trains to fall off the tracks.
And Adam finds himself
With something missing.
Comic books? Broadband? Balsamic vinegar?
Pachinko? Razor blades? Plasma TV?
He's aware of an itch
And scratching
Has yet to be invented.
He eyes the fruit,
The One Forbidden Thing.
"Not yet," says the serpent,
Who's seen the script.
But Adam is engineered for impatience:
Quests, missions, objectives,
Grails unholy or otherwise.
"Out!" says the angel.
And Adam shrugs,
Loses the core,
Strides to the open gate.
Something on two legs
Is running after him.

Genesis poem

Back before the first invention of breathing,
Way back when,
Back before the invention of the future,
Back before the circle possessed a circumference,
Before the line knew the intimacy of the edge,
Way back in the when of now
God enforced creation.
