Let me make this clear:
I am your poet,
Not your savior.
This legend is not you
And it is.

Nausicaa sent Odysseus home
To a house of frat boys
Emasculating his son,
Eating out the substance of his wife
‘s hospitality and legendary fidelity.
Murasaki gave Genji lovers
Who die of illness, who cheat on him
With his best friend. He has a half brother
Who’s actually his son—
Genji slept with his father’s consort.

So let me make this clear:
I may make you a legend
A hero like Sam Worthington
But Ozymandias is legend too
And I do not know you.
