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: The Breakdown

Excerpt:

Matter weathered

by the elements,

crumbling like us,

to the ground,

where we both originated.

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.

Cast Out of Eden: Doll

Excerpt:

Like she did to the doll now,

but the glass hands are cold now,

feel brittle to the touch,

fragile,

as if they could break

with just one careless move.
