Calypso or Circe?

Martin Chrispine Juwa

Thoughts are crowing bells

Do we stay home?
Or go into the world
Explore shores,
Or the forest?
Should we talk?
Or stay gagged?
Like a fallen warrior?

Do we choose Calypso?
That loyal, and fair lady?
Or Circe,
That woman
On Odysseus’ journey?

Thoughts are crowing bells
Like a haunted warrior.
They are nature’s fluid enterprise;
Seeking identity,
Between Calypso and Circe,
Calypso or Circe.
