one Thought & two Questions – Jordan Kron

They say this is a man’s world,
which sounds dreadfully boring to me.

Is it the cruelest cosmic joke that women
age poorly and men are visual creatures?

I ask, Eve,
with your taste in fruit a matter of public record,
but taste in men limited-
once removed from the garden with
womanly vessel filled, unfilled again and again,
when heard Adam remark,

“you looked better when first plucked from my ribcage”

what kept you from murdering him?
