Eros In Wonderland
by Alison Daniel

Taut in a place of glorious sleep
the stretch of night
slips from alters
to altered oracles about Eros.

He promises paradise
a garden chained with a pulse
tighter than Aphrodite's girdle
where dreams of Psyche wait

for black heeled death
to break her pretty neck.
