God is Ready to Present His Findings

eve looks over her shoulder
Spain – rooftop – the public shower
above the treeline.

her skin
is now a full day sun
a toaster
an oven door cooling in the kitchen
dishes ready to be
washed in the sink.

no one is there when she looks over her shoulder

the ocean is not heard in the background
trees stand still as her only audience.

on the street
passing the same building
Adam searches the tourists

passing the open door
he hears the shower
and realizing the ocean no longer moves
he pauses
and realizes the trees no longer sway

he has found her

and God
is now certain

they belong together…..
