Poetry Break: "Cyclops' Perspective"

Johann Heinrich Wilhelm Tischbein, 1802
Landesmuseum Oldenburg

No man has blinded him!

Cyclops' Perspective
Time and tide wait for no man but Odysseus.

Penelope waited twenty years . . . the "No-Man" was always late.

(BTW...that image, did Polyphemus have empty eye sockets like that? I thought he was born as an "anatomically correct" Cyclops, with but a single eye socket in his head...)
