This wound unhealed between man and woman

You gotta give it to Lilith, 
she was a hell of a woman. 
Said she’d rather fuck demons on the beach 
than lie under the belly of that whiner Adam 
& flew from paradise. 

Told God’s angels to shove it when they came to get her 
said 
Listen to me now, while you still can. 
The original sin was rape and God has chosen Adam. 
From here we begin. 

This wound unhealed between man and woman 
draws out the world.

Lilith: Myth to Flesh is a collaborative project undertaken by performance artist Luna Duran and photographer Gretchen Heinel.  By undergoing ordeals of the flesh, we aim to understand and communicate the sacred and transformative pain which Lilith endured on her journey from human to goddess.
