Sophia Lethe Talks Doxodox Down, by Robert Oventile and Sandy Florian
Sophia Lethe Talks Doxodox Down tells of Doxodox’s not quite requited amorous entanglement with Sophia Lethe.
The story takes the form of brief poetic dialogues between the two. Each dialogue exercises a specific trope, the name of which lends the given dialogue its title. Doxodox implores; Sophia Lethe demurs. Though their standoff becomes infernal, the two maintain their mordant and sometimes lewd humor as they muse on the possibilities and impossibilities of desire, life, and fate. Doxodox persists to the end, but does Sophia Lethe ever actually fall for him?
Sophia Lethe Talks Doxodox Down by Robert Savino Oventile and Sandy Florian conducts the reader on a boisterous tour of tropes to the heart of a vertiginous folie à deux.
