The Garden

All words were poetry
springing fresh
shaped from new lips

Adam spoke names
that had meaning

Each animal
sleek shone
lithe with new coats
and beneath
the ripples
of new sinew

Then Eve
stepped from creation

Poetry found a home
bone of bone
flesh of flesh

Words given Adam
stretched
broke
in defining this new thing
