The First Man

After eating the apple Eve invented the knife
She held it against Adam’s throat,
close to the jugular, point drawing blood.
She forced him to eat of the fruit.
So he would know. So he could understand her.
The cursed fruit got stuck in Adam’s throat
Try as he might he couldn’t swallow it down
Eve dropped the knife and cried the first tears
She explained her pain and her problems.
He nodded, forever cursed,
knowing he would never understand.
