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?
