Cloistered by terror of petrifaction, child grew in shadow of mother’s death and pulsing trident.
Resentment burgeons with maturing muscles. Eyes emulate hardening scales as she watches Poseidon falter with worshippers’ decline.
She grows curious of the fascinating scents and detritus as retribution approaches.
Bursting from eon-eroded shackles in absence of long-dead jailor, she dares the unfamiliar open waters to rise – starving maw eagerly swallowing families who betrayed their home for delusion of greener pastures.
