Picking the Apple?

In the Garden of Eden

Eve picked an apple

Denouncing G-d’s wishes

And falling out of paradise

And onto Earth

.

But what if the apple was never picked

What if Adam and Eve were never thrown out

What if Earth is the garden

And every single one of us

Is Eve

Standing in the center of the garden

In paradise

Reaching out for the apple

Swaying with the words of a snake

While everyone is watching

Seeing if we

Will make the right choice
