Alcmene

Mythogony
2015

translated by  the poet

She thought if she changed his name
and replaced it with another
all would continue to be,
as long as we avoid triangles
and we fall in love with mortals.
Besides, tonight
his little hands appear too weak
to choke the snakes of the wife.

  Mythogony, Mandragoras Publications, Athens, 2015
