Magpie 30 What Eve Knew.

eve knew
what she was looking for
eve understood
how dangerous apples really are
forbidden fruit

she weighed that apple with her fingertips
caressed it with her kissing lips
licked it with her reptilian tongue
rolled it between her breasts
crushed it under her armpit
measured it against her pubis
massaged her thighs
rolled it under each foot
saw it for what it was
took a bite
exposed its luminous flesh
its streaming juices
and took a sugar hit

entered the world of
fully formed
a new planet
orbiting an old sun

adam watched
his jaw unhinged
his mouth an ocean of saliva
his body at attention
circuitry crackling
as an electrical storm
swept through his body

he understood little
only saw that
life would never again be the same

I'll never think of Eve and her apple the same way again! Think I'll give it a go.

This is quite a brilliant Magpie ....'took a sugar hit' ... I loved those words!

Jinksy said...

hehe Men are so transparent! A woman maybe admiring the beauty of an apple's pale flesh...a man images she is tempting him beyond belief.

Janice said...

Oh,yes...Eve and the forbidden fruit, changing the status quo forever. Good one.

NanU said...

Ooohh, that's a neat one. I like the fingertips and kissing lips especially.

kathew said...

wow-what a sugar hit of a poem!

Lena said...

You do know I will be tempted to 'measure' my next apple, don't you? Will I be a Granny Smith or a Cox's Pippin...? Wonderful piece!

Too bad this isn't how the original story was told. I might have paid attention.

she said...

great job! Damn, that Eve... giving in to all our physical temptations - with a stupid apple! And Adam simply falling prey by watching her. It is as if you described the very first porno. Good Magpie!

Jennifer said...

Oh that Eeevvvvee....!
