Re: Cain's been a naughty boy
I read poetry, in fact I write it. In fact, I read quite a lot. I have so many books, my girlfriend is telling me I need to get rid of some. After I come to, I try to convince myself I never heard her say that, and go about my life.
What does that have to do with Cain's wife? Either she was an unmentioned sister, she was from a tribe that wasn't created by God, or God made more people than just Adam and Eve. What are the other possibilities from the story as written?

Re: Cain's been a naughty boy
An unmentioned niece?
That just pushes it back again. Either there was direct incest, mother-son, father-daughter, or brother-sister, or there were other people out in the world.

Re: Cain's been a naughty boy
I don't often go and buy a book of poetry based on the author. I'll find poems and read them, usually by amateurs or unknown people. I like to go to deviant art and read the poems on there, I even post occasionally. I have also gone to poetry.com and read some of the stuff there, but for some reason I prefer deviant art. If I get tired of poetry, I can look at photography, prose, or digital art.
If someone finds a particularly powerful or moving poem, and they recommend it to me, I'll check it out, but since the internet is so good at pulling a single poem up for you, I'd have to really love the poem to seek out more by that author.

Re: Cain's been a naughty boy
Wow, and who do you read, Mr. Poetry snob? And how does this refer back to the question at hand?
