Cast Out of Eden: Title Poem

Excerpt:

But, the tree grew anyway,

healing from the switches

taken to its base,

growing during the rainy seasons

when we nourished it.

Cast Out of Eden: Severing Roots

Excerpt:

I dug deeper into the earth,

severing roots that were never fully connected,

ones that I thought that were a part of me.

Cast Out of Eden: The Grave

Excerpt:

So, I left the table,

seeking another restaurant,

only to have them follow me,

said that I could never leave,

until I told them

I never asked them to stay.
