Day of Adam




O great grandmother of Eden *

i don’t know

if the sun will rise tomorrow.


The body is a tomb

soma sema

the Orphics say.


Only the flow unfolds


the enclosure of a turbulent dream


Where i wind the shuddering


of ephemeral yesterdays.


Bits of drift, flotsam


on the sea of time transformed


To now where sea horses

leave the waves

only to see, only to see.


* Contentiously the first primate on the Savannah, arguably the original Australopithecus female Eve of Eden from which the Homo Sapient species descends.
