Danaides, Pelasgus and the Furies – Walking with the “Lone Arranger”

Laying beneath the earth in wait of ships returnéd  brimming in false promise, they ask after Pelagarus and the maids.  Informed that they’ve apparently gone for a  needed rest an odd semblance of hollow void comes over the expression of memories.. (but)
the Erinyes are known for their persistance and Time is no friend to Injustice.

Fine.

Straight away, go right ahead,
– feel free..
(..free?)

Who needs these?
If  I’m not using them why not hang them up and let them dry?
(Cry? …? )

Help yourself
by all means!

Impale.., stake everything,
anything that moves..

There’s an Aquilles of various sorts in everyone.

Who needs ankles?

Paris is mine regardless
(..regained?)

The only reason “Any” can be envisaged is so “All” can be nailed.
(They’re almost twins. One must always be attentive..)

Walls and walls and walls and walls,
Walls of tantalizing feet
dangling
Oh! You weren’t talking to me..

I’m just pacing my surrender
at the feet of “No Mercy
(the sacred cow now all seem to eat)

The solitude of such a deed is a three way street trodden by Million.
An almost sacred trinity within the triplex of a Dantean cycle.

I’ll go fetch my sneakers..

Steve Swallow

Today among other things today is a  Steve Swallow and nephew kind of day.
(Now for a bit of trivia) It so happens that it is also World Animal Day.

So here’s to Steve Swallow,  his stings (71 today – and a wonderful musician), nephews,
and all animals (me included)!!

Nothing is more powerful than to hold a dear treasure in your arms and.. as you kiss their tiny forehead knowing full well that as your breath still linguers warm upon this earth, no harm shall ever fall upon them.

To Matt with Love (aunt Gui)
