Eurydice in the Morning


She stopped running.

Her legs trembled

as her muscles locked shut,

a groan of metallic sinew

pulling tight.

There was nothing to do

but gaze out at the land

she wouldn’t reach,

the fields of flowers

bowing in the morning,

as her body calcified

there in the sun.

A pillar of doubt.

A tower of ifs.
