Eve - poetry by Janina Akporavbare

Eve’s ribs caved inward—

Her silhouette misshapen pieces of raw clay


So, she grabbed an ambrosia

And shoved it down Adam’s throat


Grinning as the garden rotted

Her descendants now etched with crimson and chained bodies

Eve started my battle with food—

And I hope this time a marigold can solve it.
