If Prometheus fires your heart with love so late,
how long in Pandora's Hope could you wait?
Let bolts of Zeus's thunder your heart break.
If I were felled by love again,
Eros would need a mercurial arrow
as Apollo played electric guitar.
If I am to be crushed in love
I can linger no longer for Chronos --
his millennial blow's too slow.
If love would snarl my heart once more,
Artemis should set her hounds
on that petrichor scent not yet wet.
