This was written in 1998 for a creative writing class. It is the first time I wrote a poem of my own thoughts just to write a poem. I was extremely pleased with how it turned out.

Mika Bartroff

I became his first wife
THE first wife
But we did not agree
So I left
And God made him a new wife
From his rib
Who felt little or no
Need to be equal

Or perhaps
She simply did not express it
For after all
She caused
Their Fall
From Eden
