Zeus I said,- Lauren Suchenski

Zeus I said,
or Dr. Suess
the hypotenuse
of something strident and towering

the square root of the square
the snail – the stale taste of air tasting back

Achilles, my heel
my wound, my wisdom
Feed me (my feet)
and walk me back home

Strongman, I said,
send me your shoulders
toss me atop this plank of glass ceilings
I’ll sit, I’ll wait
for gravity
to
push
downwards
with my body
