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.

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!
