A weekly video reading of poetry by the poet.

I. AS YET UNBORN
by Stanley Barkin

Oh to be Adam
again
with all his ribs
yearning for a woman
as yet unborn,
mouth free
of the taste of apples,
ears without
the hiss of snakes,
mindless of
nakedness and shame
in the garden
of gentle creatures
waiting for a name.

Naming the Birds by Stanley Barkin (Cross-Cultural Communications, 2002).
