fluttering open—Io is gone. stolen away by flighty Hermes,
underhanded dissembler who has filched more than just the cow;
Argus searches for his faith, and finds it not.

    In four short lines you vividly capture a betrayal. I also love the setting of Greek Mythology.

    So, so gorgeous. You definitely nailed the compressed editing; this is so short, yet tells so much within its obviously carefully chosen words. I love it so much <3
