The dog jumps,

trying to grab a stick

resting on my shoulder,

it’s paws land on my chest

acquired, not primeval instinct

A story retold many times

A man and a woman curious to find

if they will gain immortality through knowledge

You and I since then learned

the arduous task

of gaining back

what was lost.
