Gods in Love – Mini Babu

Written in response to our prompt ‘devilment’. We will be sharing a piece by someone in our community each day this week in the lead up to our Issue II announcement next week.


Gods in Love by Mini Babu

In my portion of the universe,

young females are forbidden

to step out of homes while dusk,

lest they fall target to amorous

gods wandering the earth at that

time betwixt day and night to

spot virgins in their entire spell

along with the downing sun.

And every woman, I affirm

did step outside the threshold

while dusk seeking her god

not once but numerous times,

crimson and burning in love,

just to sight a god in human form.

How could Zeus guise himself

Other than the swan?

    1. We are just featuring it here and you can of course publish it elsewhere. These prompts are just in the build up to Issue II but all work in Issue II will need to go through our submissions process when that opens.
