Two Views of Adam & Eve

Why God Gave Us Time

A forever ago

Drifting in daydreams
God dropped time
Like a heavenly hairpin

On a golden sidewalk.

He searched pockets
The whole kingdom
But failed to find it.

So God said to no one

“What is time?
An angel hair
A demon claw

A useless thing to me.”

But he kept on
Creating universe
After universe to look in

Almost forgetting why…

When he found it
He gave it to Adam
To remind him

Someday he would die–

That was just after Eve
Made the first apple pie.
