Eve died to a malicious feeling that night
The trees around the house did not weep for her
and neither did I
An imaginary constellation descended from the skies
to lighten up the work of the gravediggers in the backyard
They wanted to put Eve six feet under
rather sooner than later
and in the morning they did
The trees around the house
did not drop a single leaf to decorate her grave
no one wailed in grief
and the malicious feeling kept hovering around
Eve was no gone and we were here
with the murder weapon escaped from an ancient tomb
and no one knew how to get rid of it
no one knew how to forgive
and that had killed Eve
and that would kill us all
