Sensitive Geek MAN: Poetry Day ~ The Fall of Troy

The fall of Troy

Everyone has lost their eyes,
sockets smooth as ancient Greek sculpture,
and, like that art,
they’ve lost their arms as well.
Over the grind of years
their color is worn off of them:
beautiful bleached bellies and
pulverized pudenda.
Forgotten that they were once
meant to be gods,
they feel their brokenness
and lose all of Homer
but his disability.
