Narcissus and Echo

Such is the tragedy of the handsome
immortalized in the story of Narcissus,
the son of a god.

And such too is the tragedy of the not-so-beautiful
Captured by Echo, a nymph.

For both are accursed:
By Hera the Queen of Mt. Olympus
to ricochet in echoes
By the Maiden
To die to be flowers.

For to love is to give
And to be loved is obedience to the realm.

C) Lorot Salem 2010
