Susan Hawthorne #87 five rivers, Cocytus

the Acheron is not enough
by the time Charon
drops me on the bank
between the Acheron
and the Cocytus
I am wailing and lamenting
everything I've done wrong
I am calling out for the lost ones
those poisoned or shot

who would have known
I had so many tears in me?
tears like blood
bursting from me


  1. I'm loving the five rivers, so moving, Susan

  2. the feel of Greek tragedy, in the best sense!:)

  3. Thank you both for your comments. Much appreciated.
