Electra


Electra holding the urn with the false 
ashes of her brother. Hermann Wilhelm 
Bissen 1798-1868, Copenhagen.


You can say anything, Electra, 

I pretend to believe you. 

You may say I'm your man, 

the first, 

even if you've always loved 

your father and his image 

in each one of your 

first lovers. 


Victim of your woman nature 

you are, Oh!, my dear Electra.
