E60: Song of Songs B - I Join Her Chorus

The Bible in 30 Seconds or Less

Her voice rings an octave higher, a rare pitch in this library of men. She forgot the naked shame of Eve. The Beloved belts out the body electric before we controlled the motion of charged particles with a switch. She sings the beauty of blackness, of women, of sex, before we have a chance to chain dark flesh, declare femina damned, and scorn erotic desire. So I return to the beloved's unfettered, womanish voice. And I join her chorus.
