On Ancient Paths

< Prev | Index | Next >

Judge, persona, and poet.
He lies awake, armored
In damascened metal,
The synergist of every past poet,
Sculptor of synclastic,

Below rounded Eileithyria
The syndetic tissues of a ciccatrixed
Brain labor into the night.

Midnight is past; the work undone;
The descent begins;
Virgil casts a deaf ear;
The leaves in the Sybyll’s cave
Are scattered; the hounds are barking.

At the loculus near the ossarium
These words yet remain:
