Tempting Persephone

Tempting Persephone

"The masters of information have forgotten about poetry, where words may have a meaning quite different from what the lexicon says, where the metaphoric spark is always one jump ahead of the decoding function, where another, unforeseen reading is always possible."
— J.M. Coetzee


The life line’s interrupted; all bits and pieces. The marriage line’s divided—means two marriages. But most divided lines are broken. Yours is…forked.

Young girls run away from home. Children stray from their parents and are never seen again. Housewives take the grocery money and a taxi to the train station. Most are found eventually.

He is half of my soul, as the poets say.
He will be dead soon and his honor is all that will remain. It is his child, his dearest self. Should I reproach him for it? I have saved Briseis I cannot save them all. I know, now, how I would answer Chiron. I would say: there is no answer. 
Whichever you choose, you are wrong.
