The god of beauty sleeps underground, hands folded neatly over his chest in the tight metal casket in the thick stone sarcophagus. He breathes, though the air ran out some centuries ago. The absence of air is as irrelevant as its presence.
In days long passed, they painted him-- they made paintings of him, and they painted him. Blue spirals stood out on tawny skin as he smiled down at them; brown eyes sparkled and flashed as he put the golden softness into dandelions and filled the sky with sunlit clouds when the horizon burst into purple and flame.
