After Eve bit the apple, did Adam not pose his mouth like a fish
And inhale every last drop from the succulent core?
Did Eve not then proceed to swallow the core whole,
Gulping the seeds until not an atom of the fruit remained?
The serpent coiled itself around the naked couple
Serving as their chastisement from the Lord for their indulgences,
Rather, as a body lubricant for the pair to slither
Around, inside, above and about each other,
Exploring the innards of true nature.
They burned, an engulfing hearth of flame
Forging their ambiance and sending the serpent
To the core of the earth.
