Eve came to visit Lilith 

  It annoyed her 

That this child 

The naivety & foolishness 

Would interrupt her lovemaking

With her long twin braids 

And lack of melanin 

 

It is easy to see why

He chose her after 

Lilith refused his offer 

To live over her 

She already knew the veiled dagger 

In the promise 

Of protection

Of providing 

And then when he refused 

To fuck her for pleasure 

 

And now this blonde child 

Stands in the doorway of her lair

Asking questions

With obvious answers 

 

You knew he was a monster 

Men don’t change 

Simply by encountering 

Innocence of the Virgin

And unnecessary apologies 

 

What difference would it make?

 

Lilith looked over this 

Sad, broken child

Who bought the lie they sold her 

Now visiting 

A she-demon’s sex dungeon 

Needing answers 

And maybe 

A smattering 

Of femme magic 

 

It wouldn’t have mattered. 

And Eve stood there 

And Lilith returned to her lovers.
