Myth (continued)

• • •

. . . a cloudy soul whose thoughts are loose
and uncontrolled, whose wont to grouse,
unstoppable. Fierce Wind he preys
on so-such souls, who’s drawn to please

him where he blows. He plays on praise
like the malformed mind who set nails2
in one brother’s hand for the other brother’s soul.
From this conceit, explains the scale

of Fierce Wind’s plan to cruelly seal
Deep Sky in hell. He forms a school
of artful treason, there to invert,
what once was sweet, what is now tart.
