The Garden of Eden

Sandra Simonds

About This Poem


"This is part of a long political poem called 'Atopia' that I have been working on since the November election. In part, it's an exploration of various conceptions of utopia and dystopia. I wrote this part of the poem in my head while on this hike that I took on Christmas Day 2016, the day George Michael died."
—Sandra Simonds
