out, changing skins, becoming birds, or fucking trees,
pursuing pretty boys, down on their knees
for her, their dominatrix. Each one licks
or sucks or plays the bottom if she says
they should. She's merciless with her own kind
these days. She sends her sweet young son, who's blind,
out endlessly so orgies lasting days
keep gods from other mischief. Don't forget
they started this long pornographic farce.
Hephaistos showed her, naked – spanked her arse
totally in flagrante, in a net
with Ares. And he thought it ended there?
Love turned to anger is not just or fair.
