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.
