CIRCE’S POWER

.

.

Louise Glück (New York City, 22 Abril 1943)

I never turned anyone into a pig.
Some people are pigs; I make them
look like pigs.
.
I’m sick of your world
that lets the outside disguise the inside.
.
Your men weren’t bas men;
undisciplined life
did that to them. As pigs,
.
under the care of
me and my ladies, they
sweetened right up.
.
Then I reversed the spell,
showing you my goodness
as well as my power. I saw
.
we could be happy here,
as men and women are
when their needs are simple. In the same breath,
.
I foresaw your departure,
your men with my help braving
the crying and pounding sea.  You think
.
a few tears upset me? My friend,
every sorceress is
a pragmatist at heart; nobody
.
sees essence who can’t
face limitation. If I wanted only to hold you
.
I could hold you prisoner.
.
.
