A poem for Athena

for athena

directionally challenged

athens is the only city

her feet knows,

she wanders down alleyways

undiscovered

but familiar

and sits beneath an orange tree.

she takes one plump

sunset shaded fruit,

peels back thick skin,

juice gushes down her arm.

yet she smells cypress trees,

olive oil offerings, and cinnamon.

she whispers prayer,

nimble fingers pressing

a golden owl.
