Love Me Like Eve – Catherine Wald

Explore me the way Adam
first checked out Woman.

Marvel at our bodies’ mirrorings,
delight in their divergences.
Squeeze stomach
taste tits
suckle soft, wet sheaf
that craves no leaf.

With fingernails more iridescent
than abalone; belly soft as
a pillow of Paradise,
lips more crisp and dewy than any fruit
forbidden or otherwise, I am the
Revelation and the Revelator:
Worship me.

Nakedness delights me; I will never
learn shame. Conquer my peaks
and valleys, explore iridescent caverns,
make me roar, take me to the
edge of apocalypse.

Love me like Eve
like that
while we still have time to
cheat God.
