Some men

Narcissus | Gyula Benczur | 1881

Narcissus | Gyula Benczur | 1881

Some men

are always

falling in love

give you a moment

of their hour

and swear

Narcissus blind

whose watery caress

happens on Ophelia

Cupid destitute

who with childlike resilience

hunts, dining on

squirrely lust

crazy in love

certainty-cursed

Ganymede

finding the gods wanting
