Eve Contemplating Lilith

Eve Contemplating Lilith

Eve cast her eyes upon them like a pair of loaded dice.

Saw them struggling, wrestling and sweating.

She knew then that she would take her place.

Absorb the man like a jellyfish does its prey.

She’d lie with no aspiration other than total power through submission.

She watched as Lilith was torn from the fray by a funnel cloud and sucked up into
the nether world.

She then offered herself to Adam as though she were a spring meadow.

Afterward she stared at the stars, to the spot where Lilith had vanished.

She found herself wondering what she would have tasted like.
