The Muse

She takes one of two forms:
First, Calliope —
     rational, assertive,
     the war god’s lover.
Second, Erato —
     erotic, lovely,
     lighter of the flame of eros
     in every heart.

In either case,
she inspires —
she has mastered the art
of creating something
out of nothing.

But no amount of inspiration —
either wisdom or beauty —
can tip the scales
when the artist is focused
on turning something
into nothing.
