Rhod next to a portrait of himself by Carl Chapple (who apparently also does nudes - Rhod could have been standing next to a nudie of himself).

Be to her, Persephone,
All the things I might not be:
Take her head upon your knee.
She that was so proud and wild,
Flippant, arrogant and free,
She that had no need of me,
Is a little lonely child
Lost in Hell,—Persephone,
Take her head upon your knee:
Say to her, ‘My dear, my dear,
It is not so dreadful here.’
Edna St. Vincent Millay, “Prayer to Persephone” (via didoofcarthage)
