you turned the lights back on (for Carol)

there are these
nine muses
who 
are good 
friends with
Apollo.

there use to
be ten
but
one of them
lives 
with me
now.

I
worry often
about
losin' her
back to the Gods
and
never seein'
her again.

so
now I want
to dip
her
in ambrosia
to make
her
immortal
just like
Thetis
did for
Achilles.

but 
there's always
gonna'
be a weak
spot
where love
and
life
can just
pack-up
and
leave.

but
for now
she's my muse
and
I love her.

her
name is
Carol.
