By Thomas Page


O Calliope,
The muse of epics help the
Cantor remember
An aristeia,
Canticle of combat,
Divinely desir’d
Types in literature
Are found everywhere;
Errant hero in us all
Echoing someone
Else’s voice, marked by quote marks,
Calling on muses
Your pompê, pompê
Errant xenos lost
On this kingdom’d rock and hall
