Pluto

Oh son of Saturn still holding true to your father's law of limitation. Will Neptune capture you as Triton? Expose your simian line! Celebrate your difference! Embrace your darkness! For only in its depth will the seed of any living thing become fertile. Yet you hide behind a distorted window of frozen atmosphere. Still, the truth is revealed in your eccentric orbit; in your rebellious rotation. But until you find courage, until you take solitude, until Charon views the fullness of your unmasked face, Who will pay his fee? Who will journey Styx?

Like myself, a fan of Greek mythology, my favorite way for masking poetic conceit ... here it clothes our mortality with tragic beauty. Love it
