A poem by Jenny Keto
Before you became my sightless unknown caller, a lodestar tethered to a lightless tomorrow,
An unknown God cleaved matter from matter, sheathed all that man would name rename
For an untamed tomorrow.
Before Prometheus poached hoarded coals, counted time with stolen heat untold,
You had yet to conceive the flesh pulse of action; that pandemic pendulum beat
Breathed all hell in tomorrow.
Before twice 7 saw blind incensed, named you sin 7 ways, your censured body slayed senseless,
Contempt formed Pandora w/thighs adored spread to lay sighs atop e/breast, a claything to tempt &
Wrest all man from tomorrow.
Before you were sentenced a lifetime somnambulance, a lifeless sub semblance,
Pandora opened a jar left for man fill lidless pain spilt ajar; unboxed havock locked and kept what
Hope I left for tomorrow.
