escher poetry — [O] :: 1

poseidon’s daughter
military model

handmade bladed trident
maîtresse of the catwalk

delicate insurrection
sensual aromatic mayhem

a style we all want
to carry    to possess

the heritage lives
she’s her father’s daughter

which is why
despite the folly

of those
who deny

their god’s deeds
the waters will come
