Sappho Extract Poem



Deathless Aphrodite of the spangled mind,

of all stars the most beautiful

for no

other girl

do I compare you.

If only I

will lay down my limbs

having encountered

cloth Dripping

Innocent no longer

Sweetworded desires


to hold

O beautiful O graceful one

Someone will remember us

I say

even in another time

Syd Abad

Wells '22

“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” ― Audre Lorde, A Burst of Light
