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.
