Dogslandia Sonnet #149

What came first, the gender or the pronoun? When Adam had his rib removed, was there
anything to call him until the flesh became clear?
He, alone, requires no third, no second, no sound.
Without those two, must there be a first?
What point is sense of self without another?
Is God’s voice in our hearts enough for
the measurement of a pronoun? What’s worse:
The idea that the self cannot exist without
Another person to bounce off of it,
Or that the self exists when nature’s out
and I am in, and I am not a part of it?
And, if we accept that Eve’s our rib, shout
at her, and pronouns break communion, doesn’t it?
