CIII

When Man was still alone upon the Earth;
just Adam and the beasts, God looked and said,
“It is not good for Man to be alone.”
It’s likely that he said this because Man
was (up to now) unsatisfied in love.
Well, sex. Unsatisfied in pleasure—yes,
that’s it. For humankind was not yet far
above the animals in reason, art,
and individuality—as we
are now so far advanced—and so, and thus,
the Man saw beasts entwined in making love
and thought, “I think that’s what I need to be—
more like the beasts, yes yes, that’s what I need.”
So Adam, when he first saw Eve, looked down
upon the parts of him unlike the parts
of her and thought, “Now this is what the flesh
is for, so let’s get down to business!”

Or,
did God see this—
a quiet man who wandered lonely through
the mewls of cats, the chirps of kangaroos,
the trumpeting of elephants, the howls
of wolves, the screeching bats, the clicking bugs
the moaning whales, and roaring bears—and think,
“It is not good for Man to be alone.”
So, out from Man (read: out from Man) came Eve;
and Adam, when he first saw Eve, rejoiced—
“Bone of my bones! Flesh of my flesh!”
He spoke.
