Ever since I first read Homer s epic describing the adventures of Odysseus back in my school days three of those adventures fired my imagination The Lotus Eaters The Cyclops and the Sirens most especially the Sirens I just did revisit these sections of this Greek epic and my imagination was set aflame yet again How much you ask Here is my microfiction as a tribute to the great poetTHE SIRENS This happened back in those days when I was a member of an experimental performing arts troupe down in Greenwich Village We would read poetry dance and act out avant garde plays in our dilapidated little theater For a modest charge people could come in and watch for as long as they wantedSomehow a business executive who worked downtown in the financial district heard of what we were doing and spoke with our director about an act he has all worked out but needed a supporting cast and that he would pay handsomely if we went along with himWell experimental is experimental and if we were going to be well paid we had nothing to lose The first thing he did was pass out our costumes In addition to himself he had parts for three men and three women The play we were to perform was so simple we didn t even need a written script He was to be Odysseus from Homer s epic and three men would be his sailors As for the women we would be the singing SirensSo after he changed uite a sight in a loincloth being gray haired jowly pasty skinned and potbellied we went on stage and he told the sailors how no man has ever heard the hypnotic songs of the Sirens and lived to tell the tale but he mighty Odysseus would be the first He instructed the sailors to tie him to the ship s mast They used one of the building s pillars and when he cried out as the Sirens sang their song the sailors who had wax in their ears were to bind him to the mast even tighterMeanwhile three of us ladies were on stage as the Sirens in costume bare breasted and outfitted with wings We began singing a sweet lilting melody Mike that was the businessman s name started screaming and the sailors tightened the ropes that bound him The sailors were glad their ears were plugged as Mike screamed for nearly half an hour When the ship passed out of earshot of the Sirens the sailors unbound mighty Odysseus and he collapsed on our makeshift stage a mass of exhausted middle aged flesh The audience applauded even cheered and we continued our performance of Odysseus and the Sirens every night for than a week Then one night Mike outdid himself His blue eyes bulged the veins in his neck popped and his face turned a deeper blood scarlet than ever before And what I feared might happen did happen Mike had a heart attack We had to interrupt our performance and call an ambulanceWe all thought that was the end of our dealing with Mike aka Odysseus until our director received a call from the hospital Mike told her he was going to be just fine and would be back on stage next week We called a meeting and everyone agreed that we would suggest Mike seek psychiatric help but if he insists on playing Odysseus he will have to take his act elsewhere
