    The Myth of Innocence -new-

    One summer she goes into the field as usual
    stopping for a bit at the pool where she often
    looks at herself, to see
    if she detects any changes. She sees
    the same person, the horrible mantle
    of daughterliness still clinging to her.

    The sun seems, in the water, very close.
    That's my uncle spying again, she thinks—
    everything in nature is in some way her relative.
    I am never alone, she thinks,
    turning the thought into a prayer.
    Then death appears, like the answer to a prayer.

    No one understands anymore
    how beautiful he was. But Persephone remembers.
    Also that he embraced her, right there,
    with her uncle watching. She remembers
    sunlight flashing on his bare arms.

    This is the last moment she remembers clearly.
    Then the dark god bore her away.

    She also remembers, less clearly,
    the chilling insight that from this moment
    she couldn't live without him again.

    The girl who disappears from the pool
    will never return. A woman will return,
    looking for the girl she was.

    She stands by the pool saying, from time to time,
    I was abducted, but it sounds
    wrong to her, nothing like what she felt.
    Then she says, I was not abducted.
    Then she says, I offered myself, I wanted
    to escape my body. Even, sometimes,
    I willed this. But ignorance

    cannot will knowledge. Ignorance
    wills something imagined, which it believes exists.

    All the different nouns—
    she says them in rotation.
    Death, husband, god, stranger.
    Everything sounds so simple, so conventional.
    I must have been, she thinks, a simple girl.

    She can't remember herself as that person
    but she keeps thinking the pool will remember
    and explain to her the meaning of her prayer
    so she can understand
    whether it was answered or not. read more »
