This Poem Is a Myth

I am fascinated by myth; in awe of how it describes people, things and events; often surprised by the way it’s embraced (or despised) by different cultures (many times, by members of the same culture)… And I’m particularly interested in how the meaning of Myth has evolved through the ages… I can’t wait to read your myth-inspired poems, my Wicked Luvs.
