Of His Wanderings and Wrath Valentine

Only ‘clever’ Odysseus
wanted to get back to Ithaca
because he had someone
waiting for him there
but so did the rest of us
have someone waiting somewhere
and not in Ithaca
so far from the scene of the crime
who could even remember Ithaca
as if it had a right to thrive
while Troy was thrown under a horse
and trampled into myth
Troy and Ithaca Ithaca and Troy
did they even exist
a dramedy about a young couple
and the continent between them
who wants to go to Ithaca anyway
I want to keep sailing
