For Eve pt. 2

I didn’t believe you, so I scoured the hill

and ate my fill of the overripe fruit…

to feel and overthrow your level.

The sky maintained and the ground

grew firm beneath me. I found

no fault or deceit in your actions,

only a thoughtful child’s wonder,

and the signs of all the times you

sunk in your teeth but held your tongue.
