Apollo’s War

trojanwar

The voyeur thought often of death,

enthralled as Deathless Ones are.

*

The face that ended a million lives,

deaths senseless and glorious (as all deaths).

*

Mortals dance teetering on the brink of Tartarus,

a slip from the Underworld.

*

Why not kill them,

who live only to die?

*

A gentle shove to watch them fall,

a relief he would never know.

*

Death blisters the heels of life,

but the God of Death does not run the race.

*

No light without dark,

no life without death?

*

He envied the certainty of their fate,

the God of Oracles can not see his own future.
