    In the poem, ADAM AND EVE, ” BY LUCAS CRANACH THE elder 1526, what was the point in comparing Eve, bored of paradise, with a female teenager leaving a mall never to be seen? Is curiosity and a sense of adventure to be considered the mortal sin? And thus merits disappearance, death or worse abuse?

What We Want

What we want
is never simple.
We move among the things
we thought we wanted:
a face, a room, an open book
and these things bear our names--
now they want us.
But what we want appears
in dreams, wearing disguises.
