entry picture

Riots in another Eden, Eve’s tearful funeral,

Her truth was a lie and was all about Eve

Caged across anonymous affairs

Over poetic contexts in fragmented narratives

Through expectant open-mouthed pockets where paradise

Would never be the same again

 

Eve has escaped the serpent

But not its bite, she chases the dragon now

The blackened souls will always rule,
