of stars and sea monsters
in greek mythology,
andromeda was chained to
a rock on the coast
offered as a sacrifice to a monster of the sea
as punishment for her beauty and
perseus had been gone on many adventures
but he found her in time to rescue her from her fate,
and the two lived happily ever after.
that sort of ending doesn’t often occur
in greek mythology.
but standing outside my house
staring up at the stars that formed
I couldn’t help but feel
maybe it wasn’t so rare
to be happy with someone
