My favorite month is coming...


so I give you a Hades-esque poem. Oooo...creepy. 
 
The  Curse by Nicole Kapise Perkins

Malicious, Persephone’s gaze
on my soul,
watching as I wander
warm, free, 
eating honeyed winds
and pomegranate clouds.

Eurydice sings a wailed curse
and I walk backward,
never looking behind.

Naked, I swim the Styx,
my hunger Charon’s lust.
No coin in my mouth,
my payment made in Flesh, 
the white heat of love
                        lived in Death’s embrace.
