I believe you're asking for proof that Polyphemus' curse worked. But perhaps the reason you can't find an answer is that you're looking in the wrong place. That is: Polyphemus did not curse Odysseus at all--Polyphemus asks his father, Poseidon (god of the sea) to put a curse on Odysseus. So Poseidon cursed Odysseus and his men. The effect was storms and winds that prevent them from returning home. Does that help?
