Garden of Eden

once the Woman appears
(Man’s complementary opposite)
so does the Serpent

the status quo is never enough
never sufficient, never fully satisfying

that lingering unease in the human spirit

apart from the deadness of those who are content
without sympathy for the rest
meaning remainder, as well as repose

poem copyright 2016 by Jnana Hodson
