she moans, tempts, entices
aims to swipe your soul

Francis Wesley Alexander is a writer, poet, and math tutor who
works at an amusement park. He got the idea for this poem from an IM
conversation. Photos of pretty women, grown up orphans, bathing suits,
and appeals for money brings "Nigerian scam" to mind. But Wes is a
little unsettled by this poem. When he looked in his Classical
Mythology textbook for the name of a god or spirit for his title, he
saw the paragraph about the two gates, where if you enter the ivory
gate, your soul is stolen.
