Eve

Adam instantly fascinated by the apple
agreed
with the snake.
Dumb, perhaps - but not
ignorant - he signalled to Eve
YOU EAT!’
Good & Evil were not in the apple
(to the wanton)
... obviously they were
in the snake.

Covering her thighs coquettish with her yellow hair
she approached the disguised prince
& without doubt
must have enthralled him.

But God & Adam (combined force)
whipt heaven from her dismayed
grasp
Installed her in four walls
gave her a suitably mottled two-tone car
a white horse
Instructed her (God the supervisor, Adam the midwife)
in childbirth
which she learnt rapidly (better
from them than from the snake)
TO STOCK TO THE BRIM
first with Cain
followed by a host of them
THE WIDE EARTH.

Note

Adam is here simple but sufficiently awake to direct Eve, who needs very little persuasion, to lead the way.

She imagines she will fascinate Satan, but she is immediately confined by God & her husband to her proper role.

She has many children, of whom the first is Cain. He begins a long line of Cains.
