Hephaestos

Hephaestos

No god at all, you do not
work the forge (conscripts
and captives, the poor, do that).
You work the till.

No one begins a man
and ends a god, and you
most certainly have always been
someone or another’s man.

Richard Hoffman lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
He is the author of Half the House
