not cain not abel

adam has yet to talk to her
two days ago in an argument
he said their exit from eden
was her fault
and she clocked him
it felt good and as he rubbed his
jaw and pulled his
legs from arms off ground
she reminded him that they
were gardeners
and the great castle is now
– no one will get it right
after they are long

at the moment
her belly swells
and rounds out her
she feels a stirring
not knowing if she is
dream or fable
but the feeling of life
inside stirs
and is real
she knows nothing yet
of true loss or death
and wishes adams pride would relent
she can tell him the news…………
