i bid you your distance
allow you to fall
into the trash bin
as a slice of apple
that caused your gums to bleed
have a love fallen into you
deeper than mine?
that man you loved is dead
and did not take you to his grave
while i stay alive,
for years i can escape death by longing.
in heaven, i am waiting.
eve, i am still your loyal snake,
loves you for as long as god lives.
