Some of the words you'll find within yourself.
The rest some power will inspire you to say.

Fetch a heifer, lead her here.
Pray to the deathless ones.

Twining foil, sheathe the heifer’s horns, so the goddess’s eyes might dazzle, delighted with her gift

Shipmates lost come unrecognized as catastrophe
Shipmates lost come unrecognized as skilled and elegant work
Shipmates lost come unrecognized as flocks of birds
Shipmates lost come unrecognized as matchless princes, as gods
Shipmates lost come unrecognized as ready vessels, jars, and ships seagirt
Shipmates lost come unrecognized as suitors, passengers, goddesses, as doddering friends, pernicious bullies, generous hosts
Shipmates lost come

Thou shalt lose thy longings even for necessary food
For we will never go where lies our good
but instead perfect our illustrious toils
wondrous monuments of female wiles
the backwards labors of our faithless hands

We saw as unperceived
the rowers foam and roar backwards
We saw as unperceived
The logic that has dominated the west since the time of the Greeks
We saw as unperceived
Her heart bringing to birth backwards

But we are curious in our craft; our looms, with a web
charg’d, hard to overcome, our looms
and youths, youths that would seek our beds

We give fond hopes
We promise every man

a linen lap
submerged by logic

Odysseus in a land unknown, she constantly doubted her own conclusions because she felt her own ignorance of the provinces.

You want to go home?
Your home is being devoured?

Ask the gods.
Ask Proteus, the old man in the sea who never lies
he’s a shape shifter
You’ll have to hang on
He’s wiggly
He’ll twist and turn into every beast that moves across the earth

His purpose is to engage in real estate investments on behalf of both U.S. and international investors. Proteus writhes and flails, he strives to be both a strategic and financial partner

With his trademark flexibility and agility, Proteus anticipates the needs of your organization vis a vis revenue enhancement, cost savings, synergies of human capital, and quality deal flow.

Proteus transforms himself into water, then superhuman fire, then operates an investment platform tailored to the unique needs of high net worth investors.
He shifts into a lion, a serpent, a panther, a torrent of water, a tree with soaring branches, yet focuses exclusively on private investments, including real estate, private equity and hedge funds
He says, Let me go for it is daybreak.
Tell him, I will not let you go unless you bless me.
