A. Rosario del Alma
Himeros, beside his two apotheosized intimates,
takes the maiden on an odyssey to Tarifa of Iberia.
unwinding at a diner, her eyes wander the baroque-style quarters in meditation,
an abrupt thought surfaces– clausura neuroses!
the maiden turns to Himeros to address the essential, “Alabahun, banish to the land of sin”.
dismayed, alarmed, and unvexed the intimates commence a loud wrangle,
while the contempt maiden walks out towards the Pillars of Hercules.
B. Tantalean Punishments
An oneiric emanates with Tántalos seated upon the Elysian Alps,
his eyes shifting onto the clear-lake,
discerns the majestic hypsypops rubicundus treading Adam’s ale.
as Zeus casts his bane, and he vanishes onto the other side of Erda.
this time, amused on an unknown journey in a caravan,
while shorty the ride halts, and its crowd egresses.
inquisitive, he follows the droves of people,
onto the cold sleet- barefoot, inducing the agōn, the Ταντάλειοι τιμωρίαι!
C. Bolzano’s City of Hundred Spires
the creatour finds herself with Poe’s detective,
as he lights a smoke, and hands her the scribbled map.
both leaning onto the rails of the bridge,
overlook the sun glitters and ethereal pink-cerulean skies.
in bliss, they stroll around the city of hundred spires in search of the canaries,
unearthing burghs’ parts unknown.
D. Aphḗnontas tēn Lúkeion Akadēmía
the door opens, and the creatour walks on the halls of Lyceum,
foyer full of studēns engaged in Mythopoeic legends and chatter.
a sudden abject displeasure arises,
as she glances at the groups of desultory academics and regius professors.
lust of avarice reflecting from their eyes, the essence of filius philosophorum receding,
as the fatuous and idle ones brazenly engage in baloney.
disheartened and drained, the self walks out of the academy onto the clear light,
and the oneiric crumbles.
