as it turns out

February 25, 2009

as it turns out
the whole unpleasantness
(you know)
with the snake and tree
and fiery sword
was just a bad dream

awake
we find ourselves
Adam and Eve
middle-aged and fully clothed
with a ladder leaning into the tree

Adam hands the fruit (apples)
down to Eve
who (all smiles)
places them in a large wicker basket
the snake, out of view
eats mosquitos
