Stolen, 'widely believed to have been melted down and sold'. As if Nike could be stolen.
What they didn't, couldn't know was her transubstantial presence in the trophy.
Where is the victory when children are worked to the bone in her name?
Wings melting with shame she condemned herself, stole away to Hades
The skin untouched the gold shedding like a candle
never stolen, her value to the world dropped like a dress on a wedding night.
