Modern Medusa

If Gorgons lived in 2020, 
Medusa would slay 
with a headful of gorgeous, 
writhing snakes in every shade 
of grass, moss, forest, and emerald green 
with one accent lock of black mamba 
framing her smooth, Grecian cheeks. 
She would walk freely 
in knee-high gladiators, 
a billowing off-white dress 
evocative of cirrus clouds, 
and she would rock 
golden mirrored sunglasses, 
ensuring anyone looking upon her 
would be petrified not by her gaze, 
but by their own reflected judgment.
