And Adam Said - Poem by Stug Jordan

And Adam said he would prefer
To be alone,
Anaesthetised on god’s table
Before the operation,

But the drugs had conquered
Their first brain,
And sleep and surgery followed,
With poor Adam hollowed

So soon after having been
Shortly god’s soft voice woke him,
But Adam felt just half a man,

And as he was left alone
To convalesce,
He didn’t know that it would be
For the very last time.

That morning his visitor
A small girl, and he called
Her Company, because she

Was not at the head of him,
Nor at the foot,
But was taken in his sleep,
Straight out of his middle.

    Stug, I think I agree with OB here! You seem to have a knack of throwing in such unusual angles that one cannot quite crasp what is being said! Either I'm dense or you are just too damn genius for the likes of me! Either way I like your poetry - it's very way out but in a good way! HG: -) xx (Report)Reply
