Eden (14/01/16)

Adam had fourteen fixed ribs.
Seven symmetrical sets.
Late one evening, he breathed too deep
And when he awoke, he was lying with Eve.
From Adam’s seed came Cain and Abel:
His new garden grown beyond Eden.
But Eve had another idea,
And even Abel saw it coming,
And it was painless when, one night,
She said,
Just take a fucking breath.
And Adam was really in too deep.
Thirteen unlucky bloody cracks later
There are at least thirteen genders
Beyond the binary.
