Wily Aphrodite


Poseidon commands the sea

On chariot and golden horses

With a trident for seething storms

And a glance for peace


His river encircles the globe

Capriciously, he heaves the earth from under

Furiously, back to sea, it is hurled

Beguiling to a bewitched boy


Observe the surface of this surge

As with Neptune, there is no other

Lucid and shimmering is her velvet peel

But pity the blind for the sea swirls sinfully below


Grace consumes a lad

As her ripple lifts and sets

Into her sly wet net

His clean hands are drawn then drowned


As the nymphs near

Immersed in the their hushed hypnotic croon

Voluptuous bubbles swarm his eyes and ears

Whispers can woo a man too


Beneath the sweeping swell

Wrapped in her beguiling spell

Alas, man and boy are swallowed whole

Into the wily world of Aprhodite
