After Ariadne hanged herself
Dionysos made her his immortal wife
and gave her the crown of Aphrodite
which shines in the heavens
with the light of the imperishable stars,
the blessed dead who received wine as their portion
through initiation into the mysteries of the bull
who lives and hunts in the heart of the labyrinth.
If Anthesteria goes well I think my next tattoo will be the Corona Borealis,
a simple but elegant expression of all this.
