Original symbol for asteroid 11 Parthenope from Gould, B.A. “On the Symbolic Notation of the Asteroids.” (1852)

For once,
your voice
which always catches
its victim
fails–

Odysseus sails
past you

and you see his desire
redshift.

Above you
as you drown,
silent
success:

stars lured
and bound

tricked
into islands
of attraction.
