she gave to me
on her shiney silvered complaints.
That demon thought to laugh at me
to infect me as well
with that bitter seed.
There in that silvered reflection
Medusa was thwarted
for I saw that demon in me.
Her bitterness was also mine
i saw it there, for what it was
then it was gone, and I was free
Where is she now?
Could she even know the gift she gave?
What happened to her then, in that moment?
Did that magic find her too? Did her bitterness,
having done it’s work, find release?
