Mycenae Lookout 2: Cassandra

Her soiled vest,
her little breasts,
her clipped, devast-

dated, scabbed
punk head,
the char-eyed

famine gawk-
she looked
camp -fucked

and simple.
People
could feel

a missed
trueness in them
focus,

a homecoming
in her dropped-wing,
half-calculating

bewilderment.
No such thing
as innocent.

-Seamus Heaney
