A pagan dance

Red fire glowing 
in the sweet smelling night 
giving off captive senses 
and dismantled memories.

Timeless pictures 
flickering in front of my eyes. 
Pagan pipes and cymbals 
rouse my ears.

On the drunk mountain of Parnon
the daughters of Achelous and Evrotas
set up a wild erotic dance. 
Naked, scented and fired with desire
they call Hermes in their company.

Whatever I think
whatever I yearn 
is under the threat of a punishment.
There are too many “prohibitions” 
and I have a rebel in my mind.
