Apo Calypso 

Apo Calypso 

Odysseus split
and Calypso’s collapsing;
Odysseus split
up some trees for a raft;
Odysseus split
slipped off into the sea;
Odysseus split
and Calypso’s collapsed
Apo — away from —
Calypso

Who was Calypso?
Concealment incarnate
Concealment, containment
by force, charm, and trick
So apo Calypso’s unhidden, revealing
The truth
that the lies of Calypso were veiling
Leading those duped
to withdraw their support.
Without this foundation
it all falls and crashes
Odysseus split
and Calypso collapses.
