"Not Eve, whose fault was only too much love,
Which made her give this present to her Dear,
That what she tasted, he likewise might prove,
Whereby his knowledge might become more clear;
He never sought her weakeness to reprove,
With those sharp words, which he of God did hear:
Yet Men will boast of Knowledge, which he took
From Eve’s fair hand, as from a learned Book."
Amelia Lanyer, excerpt from Salve Deus Rex Judćorum

Coffee Shop

(a poem by mary)

Sunday morning

Coffee’s brewing

Scones are baking

Porch-light’s on

Quiet as the

Cat that’s living

In the crawl-space

Comes the dawn

With it you will

Walk in, weary

Take your coffee

Take your scone

Same as Monday

Tuesday, Wednesday

But not Thursday

When I’m home

When I sleep in

And I wonder

If they’ve got your

Order wrong

If you notice

That I know you

If you miss me

When I’m gone

Today I feel like a Mr Potato Head
Like all of my disguises are hiding nothing
Like I am empty

Today I feel like a Mr Potato Head
Like all of my disguises are hiding nothing
Like I am empty
