Medusa and the Queen of Swords

The Queen of Swords.

 Athene and as the Medusa. As Perseus seizing knowledge through skill and craft. The head as the source of wisdom, the serpents as untameable power, the woman beheaded for knowledge beyond her feminine station, the woman wisdom that still turns fools to stone even in death. 64 more words

Medusa, 1960

To curly-haired people Mother might have seemed mild-mannered enough, but beneath her calm exterior she nursed a sadistic streak, committing home permanents with malice aforethought, ignoring her helpless daughters’ protests that “I like my hair this way.” and “nobody but old ladies have THAT kind of hair.” squashing arguments with a terrifying directive, “Don’t dispute my word.”  “Disputing my word” assured swift and terrible punishment, followed by a furious lecture about how great we had it and ending tearfully with, “and I would have given anything to have a permanent wave like Margaret Lucille, but I had to wear my hair chopped off straight around.”  Had I met Margaret Lucille, the author of my misery, I would have gladly pulled out every permanently-waved hair on her despicable head.  633 more words

Medusa

I tried to bury our frozen pumps,
Leftover leaves and leftover stumps
Our compassion that was separated by stone
But in the end, He gave you a family and I’m still alone… 76 more words
