Greek mythology… Medusa, raped by

Poseidon… in service to Athena, victim

cursed by deity to become a gorgon,

a male perspective and expectation or

continued victimization by the feminine

goddess herself, a real irony to fawn,

full circle Medusa comes… Perseus to

deliver her head to Athena’s temple,

she goes back to where she had begun,

was this the curse of myth… of just a

storyteller’s mind or related to the 

skies, a tale of stars who then stun?


How is it to be understood where a female deity continues the victimization of a rape victim’s ordeal… only a story a man could tell- don’t you think?
