WOMAN

to be the thing extracted
body-spawn, child of man.
life harvested from life
gives surgery a name. Adam,
what have you lost?
even you do not know.
you, who has been stolen from.
Eve is the act of taking, she
the spare rib, the borrowed bone.

who knows how much
of his heart came along with it?
