Poetry Tuesday: Achilles Don’t Drown

My favorite passage from The Iliad:

And the water’s diamond head
Shut over Achilles, locked round his waist
Film after film of sopping froth, then
Heaved him sideways up while multitudinous crests
Bubbled around his face, blocked his nostrils with the blood
He shed an hour before.

 

But hey, as long as your heel doesn’t hurt. . .
