God’s Blueprint

God's Blueprint
To be certain our species
would flourish,

God

constructed a magnetic
attraction within us so

Powerful

that when young 

Men

were stopped by a
deep and rushing

flow of icy

Water,

or a gaping, precipitous
chasm rent in the earth,

these self-same Men
peered forth

and saw comely young

Women

on the far side
(picking wild flowers).

And then

God

could be certain
bridges would be built.

Ripped

Ripped
 
Before fitness gyms 
were invented,

a young man's 

muscles

usually came
from helping 

Father

lift the stones,

and fetching 
water and firewood

for 

Mother.
 
All the while,
 
Sister
 
studied her 
 
face
 
in the looking glass,
 
and dreamt of the
 
ripped Lad

(apprenticed to the Smithy)
 
holding her in his arms.
