Day of Adam

 

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

folding

the enclosure of a turbulent dream

 

Where i wind the shuddering

spectres

of ephemeral yesterdays.

 

Bits of drift, flotsam

jetsam

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.
