Chicagoetry: Someone Might Still Love Me

Someone Might Still Love Me

Demeter in semi-profile,
like Illinois on a map:
sharp brow, full cheek,
lake to her left ear,

glassine underworld
of wrecked ships
and crashed planes,
lovers and suitors
plucked by Hades
who is Time.

Demeter w/purse phone
recovering Persephones
of a necessary gender.

Forgotten acquaintance from high school
betrothed to Ms. Wrong.
Coveted bf of a college roommate
adrift in domestic limbo.
Barely-noticed colleague from two jobs ago
whose wedding mattered more than his marriage.

Her finger caresses
the glassine surface,
checking the chatter
as Zeus farts and snores.


J.J. Tindall is the Beachwood's poet-in-residence. He welcomes your comments. Chicagoetry is an exclusive Beachwood collection-in-progress.
