Confessions to Aphrodite IX

Canto IX: Better

“Why are you so cynical?”
she asked.
“Because I know better,”
I replied in a bored tone.

“If you knew better
you wouldn’t be here with me.”

“Maybe not, but it’s safe.”

“Safe?” she asked.
“You can’t hurt me,” I replied.
“Oh, I can try,” she said with a smirk.
