STUPID TITAN

Poem for a rainy, foggy November afternoon in the south.

STUPID TITAN


They say Prometheus
brought a bucketful
of water to our planet
after his first delivery
but no one wanted it.
We were all lighting up
our trees and bushes
and straw huts
dancing around like dogs
shouting hey Prometheus
look what we did
and the great titan himself
rolled his eyes
rolled a cigarette
and waited for the flood.
