Amisit Musa

"As the Spirit wanes, the Form appears." ~ Charles Bukowski

Amisit Musa

1st Canto

Amused by the Ego
Striving for validation.
Quo vadis?
Self-importance shall follow...

Inspiration grips one rarely;
~ Amisit Musa ~
Trapped within convention
What's the use?

Bemused when the Id
Employs Eros or Thanatos.
Querencia vincit!
Threats of displeasure ring hollow.

Expiration warns one fairly:
~ Amisit Musa ~

Suckered by your Superego
What a ruse!


2nd Canto

Calliope come, bring forth rampaging epics.

Clio's confounded by false history books.

Erato enrapture us in beauty and mercy.

Euterpe entrance us with melodic flutes.

Melpomene mirrors our most tragic moments.

Polymnia's praises are imprinted in hymnals.

Terpsichore traipses around in a tutu.

Thalia thinks this all to be quite droll.

Urania's unaware of anything under asters.

Meanwhile Mnemosyne muses, as only a mother is able.

Don't be shy, REPLY!
