Adam and Eve

yerka jacek_mind fields_between heaven and hell.

Trapped by the tree of knowledge,

the deed captured for posterity

in the farmhouse of the fall.

Surreal landscape and materiality of grime.

The serpent wakes and the angels weep.

In hell’s infernal oven roasts

over seasoned forbidden meat,

its stench hanging on stale air.

A perpetual reminder of balance broken.

Below the flaming sword they hang,

prisoners locked in the picture,

and the wheel of rebirth.
