Possente Spirito

Only by nostos
Can Odysseus escape
The nightmare of his story.

Only by looking
Back when he shouldn’t
Can Orpheus discover
All mistakes are tragedies.

But my heroes are confused.
Odysseus has returned,
And there’s no Penelope,

Never really was,
While Orpheus, looking back,
Aches to join Eurydice.
Somewhere, there’s a dancing child.
