Persephone

Persephone by Mira Trachtenberg - Photo by Phil Dolby

Perhaps she wasn’t taken
Early in the night she
Ran down into the dark
Settling into the river
Everything she’d ever
Plucked from the ground
Hardly filled the holes
On the inside of her skin
Not that she wanted to
Even feel completed
