Fickle Muses an online journal of myth and legend

Persephone and her Pomegranates
by William L. Alton

Persephone ate the seeds
because she was hungry.
How many flowers
grew in Hell? She had nothing
to look forward to, so she
popped the thick red skins
between her teeth and gave up
six months of her life.
