Bacchus

Bacchusbycaravaggio
Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio – Bacchus (1595)

An eternal aubade
to the ecstasy
of fleeting moments;

From the brightest of stars,
which cast the inkiest of shadows –

lingering, at
Persephone’s feet

Who then drew forth a silver arrow,
from the mask, beneath rippling sleeves…
