Orpheus and Eurydice
Gregory Orr

When Eurydice saw him 

huddled in a thick cloak

she should have known 

he was alive, 

the way he shivered 

beneath its useless folds.


But what she saw 

was the usual: a stranger 

confused in a new world.

And when she touched him

on the shoulder, 

it was nothing

personal, a kindness

he misunderstood.

To guide someone 

through the halls of hell

is not the same as love.
