the bible told me so

dedicating a few moments to swallowing the sky

with sharp shoulder blades the earth splits open
                                                                   & fauna are born
constant as the rainy season
buried under deep grounds where people kneel
budding knowledge heavy--solid--rhythmic
the serpent wore a mask and it was grand
angels on her side with a bird named silence
eve was the tempter
