Excerpt: Medusa – The Lost Daughter

From “A Prayer for Rain”

Peace is never without envy for the
hunger of power is never quelled by
the full belly, bloat of satisfaction,
but solely by the art of conquest, the
acquisition of something that rest not
in your palms, but in someone else’s.

Excerpt: Medusa – The Lost Daughter

From “The Oracle of Cisthene” :

Oracle tells no lies to the men who
come to it want to hear. He who believes
he is without worry worries the most
for what lies beyond his control.
