Perseus and Medusa 3

If you were the only boy in the world, slick drama of amour fou,
And you were the only girl,
With Medusa as the fiancée and Perseus as the brother, at first disinterested, then warming; their silent diction quite superb to tell the undercurrents across a peopled room.
Desire? Then cross the oceans at my command and not be damned for your doing.
These outrageous doings in the shadow of her long dark hair.
Medusa says: —I want you. And we know the felicitous lie.
Against its worshippers, what weapon does the eikon use? Fame, and beauty (such as they have not) but most, it uses all the promises of Love.
