snake

you taught me about eve

like a gunshot warning

but all I heard

was a battle cry and a prayer

“wait until you hear

about this crazy woman

this ungrateful wretch

who cursed us all forever”

but I also crave freedom weighty

in my palm and knowledge

dripping sticky sweet down

my wretched chin
