Athena – eyes of copper flame
Spirit pluming gold
White skin, the whiteness of vengeance
Sculpting beauty out of madness.

As I drink shit coffee
And scratch out poems
She paints herself a mask
Unfolds her black stockings
The frills of her femininity
And her lips like scars
Kiss the cigarette.

Athena – loves like lapis lazuli
Wraps you in her Titian cloths
Her heart a church of terracotta,
Where you can stroll like Jesus
Among the garden leaves.
