I betray you to the voice

and hide.


Cherubim turn swords,


cast flaming fig leaves


on a cursed ground.


With bruised heels


we labour


among the bitten,


festering fruits of our ignorance,


making thorns and thistles


of our crowns.


In the sweat of our faces,


a pheromonic resonance.


In our dusty hearts,


skinclad, in cleavage,


we hope to live forever,


flesh closed upon itself,


conceiving sorrow.


Our trees are pleasant to the sight


of gold and onyxstone


and every beast and fowl has its name


except for our nakedness.


In a garden of talking serpents,


cool days and lying Gods,


I betray you to the voice


and hide.


Poetry of Healing and Abuse

Painfully expressive, great language and symbolic strength.
The betrayal makes the whole scene look/feel like delusional.

Very thought-provoking, I think I'll come back and read this again.

Reviewed by Nordette Adams 10/19/2006
This poem reminds me of Adam, hiding from God, so willing to turn over Eve for her trangessions despite the evidence that he stood by and listened to the serpent as well, no objections. :-) Very well-crafted poem. I also took a look at your book Malignant Self Love. The idealizing of the object and then later the casting away, as well as a few other points, reminded me of my marriage, sadly. Well, I'm not in it now, thank goodness. ~~Nordette
Reviewed by Chanti Niven 10/15/2006
Completely original. I expected something entirely different and was pleasantly surprised. Quite a different slant on things.
Well done!
Chanti
