Poem: Emerges Athena

This one's pretty short, but a friend told me to post it as-is. Enjoy.

Emerges Athena

From the eternal womb, bleeding and wretched,
Emerges Athena, in all her wounded, resplendent glory.
Irreversibly flawed, yet whole and complete all the same.

Let us go!
Go far away where their sharp knives cannot touch us.
For we are bare and indefensible,
Against the might of those on the mountain.

-Johannes de Silentio
