Summer burned bright, hot to the touch, when the second Adam finally saw Paradise.
Like all other days, this day’s dew cooled in curling leaves, bright ants crawled into new made hills, and a lion sang in the distant deep. He didn’t notice how the ever-friendly sun bloomed slowly into a stunned glare. Instead, while his mouth still dripped red juice from his illicit breakfast, Adam leered at his wife, pale and naked.
“Are you cold, my dear?”
She turned toward him slowly. “I don’t know.”

Rocks. And spiral patterns made out of rocks. A path carved from boulders, with a slow running waterfall gently cascading down more rocks. They’ve built a mini Stonehenge that sits at the edge of the river, in front of a rusting metal railroad bridge. Lined with gravel paths and scrub grasses, I wonder what has been planted and what is here of its own accord? A large flat rock is fashioned into a bench; a very large bench that could easily hold a dozen bottoms, or more if they were children.

An awareness of things. The natural curiosity that makes you look over when standing at urinals in elementary school, or the way you empathize with the longing of teenage girls, strung-out on neurosis and chocolate.

The last time I was behind the wheel of my father’s car, I was fifteen years old. My father, teaching me to drive, insisted I make a turn in traffic. I steered the 1961 Mercury over the curb and into the green and yellow pole that marked the bus stop on the corner. Luckily, no one was waiting for the bus, and the car was barely scratched.
