Metamorphoses

In Ovid’s Metamorphoses,
People get turned into birds.
In Kafka’s Metamorphosis,
Conversion-to-cockroach occurred.
In Ovid such changes are typically wrought
By some offended god’s word.
For Kafka no explanation is sought,
His world is simply absurd.

  • Drizzly AM

    Wet asphalt under cloudy skies Reflecting the glowing yellow-white eyes Of cars responsibly creeping To work when they’d rather be sleeping.

  • Homophonic

    A scene is something that's seen. So, based upon what they mean, I thought they were related - But they're not, and I'm feeling deflated!
