Eve’s curse

The disadvantage of girls

Turns good against itself

Savagery emerges

Staking futile claim, deadly taint

Holding emotions tightly

Then the careless boy disguards

A phallic knife wound

Oh God she hurts

Turns into bitterness.

When she has a daughter

She warns

Hate your sex

Poison relationships with same gender

Don’t trust other women

And in the bleeding wind

Truth is lost

And Adam laughs

At Eve’s curse

  1. This one is intense, the photo too. A lot going on in that image, frightening just a bit. But, not these lines:

    “She warns

    Hate your sex

    Poison relationships with same gender

    Don’t trust other women

    And in the bleeding wind

    Truth is lost

    And Adam laughs

    At Eve’s curse”

    I think you wrapped it up perfectly. It’s depth is felt completely.

  2. Look at Eve who came from Adam, nature tells us she is more evolved. Only our thinking turns that around. Every man owes his life to his mother’s womb, and breast. Philosophy – Love of Sophia …

  3. Who was it declared Lilith a demon, though created Adam’s equal?
    Who was it laid a curse on Eve?
    It was preachers and scribes, all (apparently) male.
    Who, then set woman against woman?
    Yes, Adam laughed, thinking his loss a gain, his defeat a victory.

  4. …deep and kind of spooky like there’s something inorganic in the species’ gene pool, why do I feel like I’m being followed now…. Adam laughing???

  5. Grrrr….this is so true, no? So sad for our girls, but hopefully it is changing. I raised 3 girls and I hope they felt differently. xoxo I love that you can put it to words and it shows that women are power.
