Echoing Herodotus

you have spent the ribbon

of your life

gazing upon

that which you should not…

first sisters/next daughters/then granddaughter’s

ages

did you know that it would cost you everything?

or that

in the transaction of your soul

you would lose sight completely

of the shimmering reflections

of love

in the face of the firstborn.
