Dear Eve,

I saw your tattoo.

It is of the Garden of Eden, and is stretched across your long, sensuous back.
To me, it looked like a mirage, as you laid there, floating in liminal space.
Floating across my primal imagination,
of Noah,
of always floating and never landing.

Across oceans of anticipation.

As I witness atrocities in my everyday life,
I think of you.

I wonder if like you,
I will ever lie in peace, in grace, in surrender.

Yours through eternity,
