Prometheus Bound Poem by Aeschylus

Prometheus Bound

Rating: 4.5


Spasm! Again
what manias
beat my brain
hot i'm hot
where's the fire?
here's horsefly
His Arrowhead
not fire forged
but sticks: heart
stuck with fear
kicks at my ribs
eye balls whirl
spirally wheeled
by madness, madness
stormblasted I'm
blown off course
my tongue my tiller
it's unhinged, flappy
words words thrash
dashed O! at doom
mud churning up
breaking in waves

I felt like Jimi Hendrix singing Manic Depressive when I read this poem aloud. Aeschylus rocks.
