Cool of Day…

*

…Abadel’s soul escaped from his body: it flew about the scene

of slaughter and eventually settled on the tree of life, where it

assumed the form of a serpent and coiled itself about the trunk.

*

Abadel’s blood lay bubbling and seething where it had been spilled.

           *

“What have you done ? ” cried Yva.

*

“Look, I am a god, I am stronger than Abadel, you are

now mine alone to treasure and my heart is gladdened.”

*

Yva yielded to Abadam and they lay together until the cool of day.
