(Poems) – achilles – 54 words

The back of my heel is bleeding.

But it’s not my weakness,

or my downfall.

I can’t find one part of myself that’s

indestructible

or strong

or remarkable

A Greek hero that’s all heel,

with no great acts to do,

with no story to be told.

There’s no fatal flaw here other than me.
