And Then She Kissed Me


I met Aphrodite
At prison doors

She carried moonlight in her eye
And smelled of rotting flowers

Around her finger-s
Grew vines made of roses

When I shook her hand
I was torn apart by thorns

I cried out in anger:
'My Goddess why have you forsaken me? '

She reached with her index
And touched my wounds

smeared my blood on her lips

Then she kissed me.

As I backed away
My face went pale

'What was that? '
I asked

'I let you taste your sadness.'

'I think I liked it'
