Can you imagine?

I am Eve
what does that make you?
cause the rest of the people
in that story
as it is told right-
are male.
what about the sisters in the equation?
what about the sister
that had to marry
that had to marry Seth?
can you imagine?
marrying your own flesh and blood...
it just seems strange...
like something that would happen in alabama,
at midnight
in a trailer park
accompanied by banjo music...
get my drift?
Makes me wonder
if there was such a thing
as true love
back in the days of Eden
back when God
breathed life
into you Dad,
or Grandad...
man, imagine
being able to say-
"God breathed into my dad..."
how cool
would THAT be?
But i'm rambling.
I guess if God made
Adam right for Eve
then he must have made it
not too awkward
for the siblings.
But then again...
can you imagine marrying
the kid
that you've known
since mud pies and snot rockets...
i can't imagine.
but they could.
and they did.
so here we are.
you and me.
because sometime a while back,
a girl
married a brother
had a child
who had a child...
who had a child...
who had a child...
you get the idea.
