genesis:bone

The next in my series of poems based upon the opening chapters of Genesis…for your consideration:

genesis: bone

that it would take
injury
in the making of woman
is worth noting

not merely the forming
of clay
and sacred language
spoken
hands stained by mud
become red with blood
from the bone
and the flesh folded over

the breath was the same,
though

this is important
