the tree of knowledge

we haven’t stopped
sinning since the original sin
that set the ball of life
rolling

lost and orphaned

from the garden of eden
to the world of pleasure
treasure and pain

the seamless bottom
of life and strife
striving to pass over
the wrinkle in time

the exit, the window
we have lost in inquiry
the peace of ignorance
is fractured in knowing

the glitter of pleasure
a sharp pinch of pain
