Memories of Athena, by RS Oventile

(After JKD’s “Athena”)

See azure, hard snows; hear winds.
The barred window mirrors the rough, red arc.

Shuddered of her; she sprang out,
torrid, tidal, her face ancestral, brazen.

Her obsidian defiance,
Her stillness, her gazelle flight.

Wedded to bronze, to arrow shafts,
riding air, she shadows the meridian.
