the serpent son


This is the possibility of death
the snake is offering:
death upon death squeezed together.
You feel the membranes of disease
close over your head, and history
occurs to you and space enfolds
you in its armies, in its nights, and you
must learn to see in darkness.
Here you can praise the light,
having so little of it:
it’s the death you carry in you
red and captured, that makes the world
shine for you
as it never did before.
Love is choosing, the snake said.

—Margaret Atwood, Quattrocento
