A Sunday Poem: “Steve”


I was told

that God created

Adam and Eve,

not Adam and Steve.


Who created Steve, then?



Slave of his earthly desires,

Steve may have evolved

from a more primitive life form,

such as apes.


Like Michael and Gustav,

Nicole and Fatima,

Roberto and Cheng,

Olga and Maya.


Because God –

as I was told

only created

Adam and Eve.
