Dionysos Mainolês

crazy. insane. out of his mind.
stripping me naked
clawing flesh, exposing bloody bone

I watch and dance my undoing.
tumbling over laughing, screaming, bleeding
up into the mountain, down into the earth.

maenads sing my mad-happy end.
having learned the song, I join in that too.
singing, dancing, dying, becoming
