At sunset’s fall I held no blame
‘Til darkness stole from golden flame
She sat alone on riverbank dew
Where shadows cloaked my cold pursuit
A blade of grass, a blade of steel
Treading one and one revealed
Tears fell like fetid rain on,
her blood, her skin. My darkened shame
Her eyes revealed through moonlight mask,
Evacuee of Eden, as tall as masts
Ruby mouth dripped with secret musk
Adam’s fruit bulged and thrust
My silver point, my flesh torn
My heart cut out, beat in her palm
Eve’s twilight trick, she’s a man reborn.
