i see my voice curl toward the sky in crystal breaths
as i stand beneath the stars and ask the gods
"where do you fall when you fall in love?"
and in the distant thunder roars as zeus clears his throat.
lightening strikes to start a fire
and in anticipation i sit by the flames as he begins his story.

"love," he says, "is the beautiful medication
that we drink to still our pain,
but often it is overdosed
and we always end up crashing
like a star falling from my sky."

as i watch the shadows dance about his face
aphrodite proudly walks to us
with her golden grace and emerald eyes.
"there's a kingdom," she says with ivory verse, "just below the sea
and it awaits young lovers there
where they drown for all eternity."

at the mention of the sea, poseidon falls down to us
from his chariot atop the cliff and in his booming voice he declares;
"and in that cavern the butterflies are drenched
and with heavy wings they cannot fly
so they suffocate the lovers."

with the quietest gait of a clumsy fox
echo steps forth from the forest
and nervously picks at her gown's hems
with a bright pink flower in her hair.
"don't ever fall in love," she warns and somewhere in the distance
i hear narcissus agree.

and after all the party
had come down from their thrones
and gave each a new account of that thing we all call love,
hades strolls forth with velvet capes and bright red eyes.
in his pleasant voice,
as the hissing of a snake,
he spoke with a poet's heart and said:
"when you fall to love, you fall to me."
