The Strange Sound Adam Made When God Betrayed Him

a sort of shriek

strangled and savage

rather like a sounding bell

but shorter, sighing

a sinking separation

snorting with insolence


in the snout of the sky dome

over sea waters

against that sneering face

in the stomach of the sky

a slowing slip of the tongue

an accidental sacrilege

the inadvertent defiance

as the sacred deceives itself

(in the somnolent gloom before sunrise

Adam snuggles closer to Eve’s caresses,

nuzzling the soft wetness of her sweaty skin

and whispers with suspicion to himself)
