Over the face of naked waters
a nameless breath was blowing

In wide wind
white seeds of weakness &

weightless days of realization
whirled in one confused flurry

A subtle hand separated
light from dark
dark from salted sky

& turned

to lift solid air above
from undulating dark seas below

On the second day
a sphere of raw fire
was carried up
into blank dark
to create day

& a round stone mirror
rose into
the opposing sky
in a shower of sparks
to paint night

Our globe’s green skin
split into countless
shoots of wet grass

& the bark of trees burst
into soft green flames

Blizzards of birds
brought fresh brilliance
to foliage

& seven oceans flooded
with flashing blue life
of countless fish

At the next dawn
dark infant soil
learned new red languages ~

pulses of horses & bulls

Massive shadows of
elephants & rams
spilled into wilderness

wildness of rain-wind

On the following day
plots of dull clay were shaped
into articulate human fingers

Between blood & blood
skin & skin
man & woman ~

the two took shape

Held in delicate hands
of sentient trees
one unique
in rich scarlet fruit
pregnant with secrets

& seeds that carried
rumors of death

Amidst wrinkled branches
a serpent made
of the yellow muscle of want
wound insidious whispers

You will know

& fathom the sky
if you bite

this blood-red fruit

Each stretched a fleshy hand
toward one apple
that was their own
crimson consciousness

Man & woman shared
that dark-starred fruit
until their lips bled with vision

Taste of sunset
inside the sky

they ate
red within the red
as the first leaf wrinkled

& blindly fell
