Quick Note to Eve
First off, don't believe everything you read.
The rib thing? Adam's made from yours.
It was an experiment--I wanted to see
how you looked with an elongated abdomen.
It was silly of me. Proportions were odd--
you were perfect to begin with. So I put the rib back.
But by then, well, there he was, the shlub.
Blameshifter, gossiper, egotist--
he was a big mistake and he’s
got a big mouth. Humor him
if you can; give him something to do.
He seems to like busyness.
The apple? Not a problem. It's just fruit.
Pairs well with serpent meat.
Working on something called
a pomegranate. It’s weird. Stains
too, but I can’t stop thinking about it.
Progeny would be good.
If not, no worries--
we'll figure out something else.
I've been toying with an idea,
could really mess with people's heads--
not sure it'll fly.
Well, got a meeting, but--
and keep this to yourself, please--
you’re my favorite.
