Many things pierce a woman’s heart: 
in place of the man she sent out
she knows
she’ll get back

or the crash of sword upon sword
of the Pyrrhic dancers?

how could the lyre-string fail?

For wisdom is the property of the dead,
A something incompatible with life; and power,
Like everything that has the stain of blood,
A property of the living…
