I’m not a Grecian hero.
I’m more like
Oddysseus
or
Uselesses.
At some point
I also must have ******
off Poseidon
because I cannot drink
water without spilling it
on myself.

Vestal white roses,
Shed their serrated surface,
Then tainted in red.
A Greek goddess, love, roses, and blood.

Or

Of

Swimming

‘Aren’t you afraid of my darkness, my dear?’ Hades asked with mischief in his eyes.
‘No.’ Persephone replied, ‘You haven’t seen mine yet.’
Do you know the story about Hades and Persephone?

As posiden rages
The cuirse ship
And other
Boats on the
Sea bobbing
In the violent sea
For he's angry

Getting rid of the
gravel in your shoulders
is a Sisyphean task.

The boulders you hold
in your skin,
that creep up your neck
and back,
that you shrug and press out,
only to find returned by morning,
are penance for the
infraction of your inaction
offending the gods.

Your worries
had the nerve
to pile higher than Olympus,
and you let them.

And so you’ll always shrug and press
and less and less
you’ll move your neck
until your head’s
set straight ahead,
and only sees
your monument
of stress.

I sail a ship across the horizon
of some distant sea
luring and catching albatrosses,
nature’s Daedaluses,
to take their wings
and replace
my face with feathers.

But

the mask
will be permanently fixed
in my skin,
making me
a legitimate Icarus,
that may fly without fear
headfirst
into the sun.

As the Trojans remain
In troy
As it burns
To the ground
The Greeks win the battle taking Helena of Troy with them.

As Alexander
Approached the caucuses
He notices the
God permithus
Chainted to the rock
In suffering
What shall Alexander do.
